About Me

My photo
Born in the late 60's, Chesy hails from a Welsh mining village with a long name and was pretty glad when he got the Hell out of there. He got into Rock/Metal in about 1980, thanks to a TISWAS related incident (Rainbow video for All Night Long) and thankfully has never looked back. Chesy often sang solo in the school choir, but thanks to a puberty related incident his voice is now completely bolloxed, although in his own head Paul thinks he sounds like a blend of Coverdale and Dio (R.I.P). He was brought up on the classics - Deep Purple, Rainbow, Thin Lizzy, Rush, Whitesnake and loved melodic rock and the Hair Bands of the 80's. (Nowadays, he has progressed a little and prefers a more technical and/or progressive metal - Dream Theater, Rush, Symphony X, Porcupine Tree, Pain Of Salvation, Spock's Beard. He hates Black and Death Metal (can't stand the grunting) but for some unknown reason loves the magnificent Opeth! He wont stop this blog until his beloved FM finally play the likes of the NEC as a headlining act!!!

Steel Panther Interview - Satchel & Michael Starr, Manchester Academy 30.3.2012

See below my interview with the 80s legends that are Steel Panther.

We turned up at the venue,and as is the case, we weren't on the list. Thankfully Matt (tour manager) let us in once we started crying!

Anyway I went armed with some gifts, something I'd not seen done with guys previously, and the rest is comedy gold. I couldn't get a word in edgeways, so we just let the camera roll. Enjoy!

Part 1

Part 2 


Me and Michael Starr & Satchel with their gifts!!

Harry (my son) was on camera duty, so he took in his guitar on the off chance and they were more than happy to sign it with some pretty vulgar stuff!!
