CRMP # 4 - November 2010

Your new home for all things Classic Rock and Metal

  • Black Sabbath
  • Bill Ward
  • Y&T
  • Robin George
  • David Byron Band
  • Steve Hackett

This month we’re thrilled to have original Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward on the show talking about his 40 years since Paranoid‘s release, how he views life after his drink and drug problems, plus his solo projects and the possibility of a Sabbath reunion.

Y&T have just headlined a UK tour again and it was our great pleasure to talk to main man Dave Meniketti and catch up with the news of bassist Phil Kennemore’s treatment for cancer as well as talking through the new Facemelter album and how he turned Ozzy down many moons ago.

Robin George graced the front cover of Kerrang back in 1983, but since his 1985 Dangerous Music release has somewhat dropped off the radar - or so you thought. He’s actually worked with Robert Plant, Glenn Hughes, Phil Lynott, Diamond Head, Pete Way and Uriah Heep’s David Byron to name but a few. We kick back and catch up.

Finally former Genesis guitarist and renowned singer/songwriter Steve Hackett checks in on the eve of his latest UK tour supporting his most recent release Out Of The Tunnel’s Mouth. Having just played 150 shows around the world he’s proving that he’s still a road warrior at heart.

Competition: WIN copies of the brand new Dio at Donington: Live 1983 & 1987. Listen to the show to find out how!
