Anyone confirm if this was the same band with Cozy Powell?
Chris Meachen… Don’t know about Big Bertha, but I got an excellent part time job as a reptile keeper in the Zooquarium
Pete Prescott…. Pete, Ray, Chris, Neil and Cozy 1988. Slough Studio.
Chris Cozens and Pete Prescott & Ray Fenwick supplied by Pete Prescott
Chris Cozens….No, I’d not seen that one so I’m so happy that that hairstyle is preserved here! PS – I AM standing up!
Andy Qunta….Great shot!
Pete Prescott… Chris like me is a left handed player. When we started writing together he came to my place in Hastings. This is around 1986/87
Terry Pack… I did some sessions on the Graham Bonnet albums, too. They were pretty shambolic affairs: multiple studios (at least three), Cozy’s drums covered in tea towels, Ray’s sequenced keyboards, an engineer (at Redwood) who had no idea. I’m amazed they got finished and released.
Pete Prescott… I’m proud of the fact that two songs of mine are on the album but I hate the way he sang the ballad. He came in so strong vocally and made mince meat of it. I have not heard it in a long time to be honest and it wasn’t giving “the long and winding road” a run for its money as a song ha ha ! So back to my original statement. I do remember a very worried Ray wondering how he was going to get the lead vocals on the Bonnet album finished when he only had 4 weeks to do it ! (Tony Martin and I sang on albums in 4/5 days each). Cozy said he had warned Ray about Bonnet.”just ask Roger Glover ” he said. But Ray wanted a big name. When he had the right song Bonnet is amazing. I mean he is Graham Bonnet.
Pete Shaw… Simone and Catfunkle… Harmony Hairspray…. After and before! Luv ya Pete !
Here’s a rare photo of Cozy Powell taken by Pete Prescott, rehearsing at Catsfield Studios playing the hammers!
