Quireboys Laughs Off Drummer Woes and Accept Spinal Tap Comparison

(Classic Rock) Quireboys frontman Spike has laughed off the band's drummer woes – and accepted a comparison with Spinal Tap. They recently parted ways with Matt Goom, the eleventh man to sit behind the kit, who said: "I'm now ready for a new adventure and I will see you all very soon." The current stand-in is Simon Hanson of Squeeze.

Asked if Spinal Tap used the Quireboys as a role model, Spike tells Austrian TV show Mulatschag: "Exactly. We've had 25 since the start. You couldn't make it up, could you?"

He recalls how late Little Angels man Michael Lee replaced Jason Bonham, who was still packing up when the new man arrived. "They were never very good friends," he says. "The look on each others' faces… originally Jason didn't get the job with Page and Plant – they gave it to Michael."

And Spike says his memories of working with former manager Sharon Osbourne are good. Read what he had to say.
