Spinoza's Dream was just released in May 2016. It was a pleasure playing on this album. I spent a week last September in the Welsh hills at the fabulous Red Kite residential recording studios cutting this album for my musical buddy Dave Nachmanoff who when not pursuing his own career has been Al Stewarts right hand man on second guitar, vocals, keyboards, violin and accordion if that wasn't enough! It was such a pleasure playing on this album with him and two even older buddies, TIm Renwick on guitar who I first met when we played on Al Stewarts Year of the Cat album in 1975 and Mark Griffiths on bass who also played for many years with Al. The atmosphere in the studio was electric and Martin Levan's production and engineering skills made it a dream project all done in the old fashioned way without a safety net! (that's a euphemism for click tracks and machines!). The album is available at Dave's website.
     
Stuart will be on tour in November as part of the Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel The Best Years of Our Lives 40 Anniversary Celebration Tour. This will be a first time re-union of Steve Harley and three of the original members of Cockney Rebel, Stuart, Jim Cregan and Duncan Mackay.
     
 
I've just recently returned from Peter Gabriel's Real World studios in Bath cutting an album for Jules Knight aka Dr Love from the BBC Hospital TV drama Holby City and for the first time in many many many years I got to play with David Paton and Andrew Powell, my old buddy's from way back in the early days with Kate Bush and of course Tim Renwick who I played with a year or so ago at the Royal Albert Hall with Al Stewart performing Year of the Cat for the first time in 38 years so all round a very enjoyable musical and social experience. Here's to many more!
     
It is with sadness that I post this tribute to Jack Bruce who died on 25th October 2014. When I was a teenager, Cream were never off my record player, particularly their album Disraeli gears which is incidentally the only album I have ever bought twice in original vinyl and then CD. If I'd have known that one day I would play drums with their front man and founder member and the genius behind such great songs i would most certainly have collapsed in shock or died and gone to heaven, such was my hero worship. I had the honour to play a few concerts with him and record a few tracks on his album "Something Els" way back in the 80s. Here is a song from that album called "Ships in the Night" Such a beautiful and haunting duet with Jack and Maggie Riley. I'm thrilled to have been part of this. There is also a video in the gallery section where you will find Jack and myself playing with Ringo at the Michael Jackson and friends concert in Munich 1999... Goodbye Jack! we will all miss you and your unique talent.
 
 
Here are a few photos of the original players re-union show at London's Royal Albert Hall in October 2013 performing the "Year of the Cat" Album with Al Stewart for the first time since recording the album in 1975. The night was a huge success and it is hoped there will be more shows in the future. It was just amazing playing with Al and the guys after so long. Musicians who I admired way back then that are still way on top of their game . Even though it is said that a band is only as strong as it's drummer I have to admit those guys made me sound better!
