Rory Gallagher Offshoot Band Of Friends To Release Original Music

(The Blues) Band Of Friends, featuring former Rory Gallagher band members Gerry McAvoy and Ted McKenna, are gearing up to release original music written by themselves with guitarist Marcel Scherpenzeel.

The three-piece formed in 2011 with the intention of pay tribute to Gallagher's music, and they've been receiving rave reviews for live shows across Europe since they took up serious touring last year.

Now drummer McKenna has revealed that four or five completely new tracks will appear alongside live video footage shot in Germany. He tells The Blues Magazine: "Since we started doing gigs the reaction has been the same everywhere. People started asking, 'Have you got your own material?'

"We didn't feel right about recording material we did with Rory, and I don't think people expect us to do that. So we started to toy with the idea of new songs. It would show we're serious." A lot more here.
