I’m posting this picture with fond memories from my tour last summer with Alberta Cross and Everest. It was the first time I’d ever played the Troubadour in Los Angeles, CA and I got to play it twice in the same night. So much fun.
Another first for me in the way of mentionable gigs will take place this week when I play at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC as part of ASCAP’s Songwriters: The Next Generation concert series. Mountain Stage’s Larry Groce will host the evening and also conduct a short interview about songwriting with me. Very excited about it.
After that, I’ll head straight down to SXSW in Austin, Texas for three solo gigs and three gigs playing guitar with my band, BP Fallon & The Bandits. Looking forward to all of them! In April, I’m getting right back to work on my new solo record, “So Young, So High.” I’m also heading out on a brief tour playing guitar for Sylvain Sylvain of the NY Dolls and Glen Matlock of the Sex Pistols. Should be a great run.
During much of 2012, a band of which I’m a proud member, BP Fallon & The Bandits, have been hard at work on our debut album, Still Legal. The band consists of BP, myself, Nigel Harrison and Clem Burke. On the record we’re joined by the great Ian Mclagan as well as my dear friend Brendon Anthony on fiddle and mandolin. I played guitar, co-produced and co-wrote all the songs with my fellow band mates and we had an excellent time recording them down in Austin, Texas at the great Red Horse Ranch Studios owned by a true rock’n’roller in his own right, Jimmy Quill. The album will be out soon in many different formats including vinyl, digital and CD. You can pre-order it now by going to pledge music and also get lot’s of other groovy things that BP has curated for you to peruse. A pre-order of the record will also get you an unmastered mix of the song “Does Anyone Care What Anyone Says In Rock’n’Roll?” Just click here.
