It Bites

Posted 22/5/2023

Apparently, I'm the new keyboards player in  Francis Dunnery's IT BITES.

I've always admired Francis Dunnery. The first time I heard of them was when I was touring the North West near their home town of EGREMONT. Cut to scene years later, after hearing a few of Francis's solo albums...I heard that FD's IT BITES were back out on the scene..Why take so bloody long to grace the stage?.


I had a 90 minute conversation with Francis over Christmas about Prog, music, birth signs, name it....

Most importantly though was a connection over love for music and authenticity. I had some FaceTime calls (whilst I was attempting to do gym time) and I'm happy to say the connection grew. I saw them in January and then of late, found out in a text it was announced on social media, that I was the new boy (hardly a boy anymore-except for in my head). I head up to see Francis June where we shall have a jam, talk bollocks and hopefully we'll be doing some writing together. It's all exciting after the last two months where I've played 5 weeks in Canada with Chris de Burgh, a Bonnie Tyler show at sea, Blown my BMW up, heading to get a few little tattoos done...and have managed to rescue my Neve Summing mixer from Blowing up....ENOUGH BLOWING UP NOW PLEASE. 

This Week, Rob Reed's Sanctuary in Newbury. Always amazing to do the Sanctuary gig. Great musicians and wonderful people.....


IT BITES eh!.....who'd have thought!
