Queen are to record their first studio album in 15 years.
 The British rockers haven't laid down any new tracks since
the death of their iconic frontman Freddie Mercury in 1991.

The band's guitarist, Brian May, confirmed: "
We have about three weeks booked in the studio at the moment."

On the new album, Freddie will be replaced by former Free singer Paul
Rodgers. Brian said: "It was going to be just exploratory to see
 what happened when Paul and Roger and
 I were in the same room with a recording machine.

"But we're already deep into it and we already have some very good
material so I'm pretty excited about that: it's very new, very different.
"There may be enough there to create an album, though it's early days yet.
 At the moment it's just a few tracks but we'll see how it goes. It's pretty exciting."

This will not be the first time Brian, Paul and drummer Roger Taylor had joined forces -
 the trio toured Europe and Japan in 2005 and North America earlier this year.

Brian concluded: "We don't really have anything to prove but we have a lot
of passion still in our bodies and it seems to be finding a good place at the moment."




This is just a reminder that Daylight Saving Time is over for the year on Sunday. 29th Oct ..
 Don't forget to set your clocks back.
Also, as you know, this is a good time to change out the batteries in your smoke
detectors to ensure your safety in the event of a fire.
And most of all, enjoy the extra hour of sleep!

The Famous Bein Inn (Up for sale)

The Edinburgh office of leading licensed property agents, Christie + Co, has been appointed to handle the sale of The Bein Inn Hotel in Glenfarg, Perthshire. The proprietor, David Mundell, has owned The Bein Inn since 1999 and has decided to retire.

The Bein Inn is located six miles south of Perth and just off the M90 Edinburgh to Perth motorway, in the heart of some of Scotland's finest scenic, sporting and heritage country. The inn was built in 1861 as a resting place for travellers on the traditional route north from Edinburgh to the Highlands. A well known live music venue, the Bein Inn was awarded the Music Pub of the Year Award Scotland 2002 and was runner-up for the Music Pub of the Year Award UK 2004. Offers over £600,000 are sought for the freehold property, which comprises public and lounge bars, reception lounge, 55-cover restaurant or function room and 12 letting bedrooms. There is also two-bedroom owner’s accommodation and four bedrooms used for staff accommodation. The Bein Inn enjoys an unusual mix of trade, retaining a more traditional client base with the business offering bed and breakfast, morning teas and coffees, bar lunches and evening meals. The inn is also well known as a music venue for pop and rock and attracts artists such as Simon Kirke (Free and Bad Company), Ben Gallagher (Gallagher and Lyle), Gene Parsons (the Byrds), Chip Taylor (the man who wrote Wild Thing), Curtis Stigers – Big Brother & The Holding Co, Tony Joe White & Henry McCullough and many more.

Denis Hillier, Director of the Edinburgh office of Christie + Co, comments: “The Bein Inn offers a rare opportunity for someone, particularly with a musical bent, to acquire a fantastic country inn within a beautiful setting, with the main property built in the 19th Century and retaining much of its original charm. The business trades well showing good profits and has become an important venue in musical circles, as well as much appreciated by the traditional traveller.”

Deborah Bonham is the younger sister of the late John Bonham, the world's greatest rock drummer. Deborah was only five when John joined Led Zeppelin, but this powerful introduction sparked in her the overwhelming desire the write and perform music. 'The Old Hyde' is a stunning array of bluesy rock and emotive ballads, all perfectly showcasing Deborah's stunningly powerful voice to maximum effect, the title track being a ballad written about her brother's John & Michael and her late father and the house they built, where Deborah was raised on.

Debbie and the Band have just returned from the USA after supporting FOREIGNER and just in the last few weeks have also been supporting PAUL RODGERS on his Tour in the UK.

Music Review by Elly Roberts 

Artist – Paul Rodgers -

Venue – Lowry, Salford Quays, Manchester

Rating – *****


British blues-rock icon Paul Rodgers is still going strong on his UK Tour 2006. In fact, the legendary singer’s voice is in great shape. This night at the Lyric Theatre, he rolled back the years backed by his sensational all-American band – Howard Leese (ex-Heart) and Kurtis Dengler (Electric Shades of Blue) on guitars, drummer Ryan Hoyle (Collective Soul) and bassist Lynn Sorenson. The former Free and Bad Company frontman is going through a serious commercial renaissance via the release of the outstanding Free Forever DVD, Free ‘Chronicles’ and Free ‘Live At The BBC’ CD’s. With the added benefit of leading Queen last year, all things are pointing towards Rodgers once again. This outstanding gig was a memorable night in many ways. Going back to the early 70s when I saw Free at the Boxing Arena in Liverpool, this was very much a sentimental event. Thrilled at seeing him once again, and meeting him after the show, it brought back floods of memories from that night when a music - mad teenager went to his first rock gig at the age of 16.Arguably one of the greatest voices of all time, he’s proving he can still cut the mustard at the age of 56. The setlist, drawn mostly from his Free days, some Bad Company and solo releases, the seasoned veteran went all out to impress – and how. As the white spotlight draped him, he opened with soulful funky bass-led I’ll Be Creepin’ with greetings engulfing the venue. Parading the stage to engage his fans, he was out to have good night, spinning and lofting his mic stand. Free’s All Right Now follow-up flop, The Stealer cranked up the pace with the band showing their collective credentials. Two gems followed – Pony and one of Free’s most treasured songs, the haunting Be My Friend.

Dropping in “work-in-progress” War Boys ( A Prayer For Peace ), he encouraged the crowd to stand and party, though that would take a bit longer to take effect. When Feel Like Making Love arrived three dancers popped up at the stage front, which clearly delighted Rodgers. Moving to tinkle the grand piano, Rodgers launched into the rock blast of Bad Company. A song with The Maytals, Smile, recorded in Jamaica, was considerably beefed-up for purpose, as mesmerising 17 year old Dengler and slick Leese went head-to-had on solos. The three song run-in became the crowing glory. Fire And Water raised the stakes. The opening of Wishing Well brought the long overdue party atmosphere, raising the roof. Then Rodgers asked, “Are you reaaaaaaady ?” “Yes we’re reaaaaady, “we replied to the drumstick countdown of All Right Now. Chords blasting out, the story of the boy-meets-girl pickup sent the crowd wild. Leese’s solo (a match for Kossoff’s any day), was the defining highlight of the show. Rodgers even managed to let us sing the chorus a few times on our own, to everyone’s delight.

A change of T-shirt for the finale, more thrills followed. Hendrix’s Little Wing was superb (more dazzling work from Dengler) as was sexy rocker I’m A Mover. Going out in style, a thumping The Hunter boomed out, taking the set to another level, again with Dengler and Leese showboating, whilst Rodgers’ mic stand was lofted and thrown several times, marking a triumphant return to Manchester.

Mick Ralphs


In the late ’60s, when it suddenly became cool for dudes to wear makeup and glitter while playing unruly riffs,

 the Les Paul Junior came along for the ride. Mick Ralphs—whose blistering tones powered Mott the Hoople

 and set the bar for glam guitarists to follow—used the Junior’s raw edge to keep the band’s sound

 from getting too campy. In such densely arranged Mott songs as David Bowie’s “All the Young Dudes,”

Ralphs proved that a P-90’s howl could successfully compete with churning organ, jangling acoustic piano,

and punchy horns. His honking power chords in 1972’s “One of the Boys” formed the blueprint for Bad Company,

 which Ralph formed with singer

 Paul Rodgers in 1973. Tough stuff!

Review of Simons Bein Inn Show by Ingrid Doneus

The man is usually hidden behind the drum kit laying down the 
impeccable rhythms in bands like Free and Bad Company. Given that 
what are we supposed to hear and see when doing his solo shows?
I knew what to expect, so I went all the way from Austria to Scotland 
just for Simon´s gigs. He went on stage together with Larry Oaks, 
formerly with Foreigner.
The Bein Inn, as the venue is called, is the the perfect setting for 
intimate concerts, making the artist perform in front of no more than 
50 people, thus creating a feeling like he´s playing in your living 
No stage entrance exists, the performers use the same door the 
audience does.
Enter Simon, taking centre stage, normally inhabited by someone like 
Paul Rodgers, he immediately makes contact with the audience in a 
very gentle and disarming way. Telling stories of times gone by, 
antics from the wild days as well as touching memories from his every 
day life struggle with substance abuse and family rows endears him to 
all the listeners.
For a start, no drums or percussion are to be seen anywhere. A set of 
guitars and a piano, that´s all that is there. And it doesn´t need 
any more gimmicks, because Simon is quite familiar with those 
Displaying songs from various periods with his former bands he also 
confronts the audience with his own material from Seven Rays Of Hope, 
making you ponder upon your own life and leaving you with your mouth 
open regarding all the talents within one single man.
I am a dedicated Paul Rodgers fan, and he is the epitome of all the 
songs from Free and Bad Company. Never thought I would accept any 
other version, but guess what? After the opening chords of Movin´On I 
it never occured to me something was missing, Simon delivered the 
songs passionately and perfectly (sorry Paul, I still love your 
voice, and will do so forever, but one should never underestimate the 
talents of other band members).
Rockers like Feel Like Makin´Love, Bad Company and All Right Now 
alternated with songs like Love you so, Shooting Star or Filling The 
Void, every one of them performed flawlessly and leaving the audience 
stunned. Larry Oakes does very well on back vocals, playing the piano 
and doing a brilliant solo in All Right Now.

This is a special year for me. Never before had I seen one of the 
members of neither Free nor Bad Company perform live. This year it is 
going to be two of them, first it was Simon twice, then it will be 
Paul thrice.
But I wonder whether I will gain so much joy from the latter as I got 
from Simon. What made Simon´s shows unforgettable was the opportunity 
to talk to him during the breaks and after the shows. He is very down 
to earth, intelligent and witty with a typical English sense of 
humour. He is very affable and a gentle man, a gentleman indeed.

As I could tell from his comments he loves to perform and it seemed 
to me he misses it a lot. So we all should try to get Free back on 
the road, even with only half the original line up (you certainly all 
know why). During the writing of this review I learned Boz Burrell 
passed away. No more time wasting, there´s a huge demand for Free´s 
music and they were at their best when playing live. Even if that 
only remains wishful thinking I do hope Simon will play again at the 
Bein Inn. And I´ll be there as well. Thank you so much for those 
wonderful performances!

Seize the day!

Very Sad News to report

Boz Burrell passes away

Fri., Sep 21st, 2006

The 60 yr old Original Bass player of Bad Company 

was at home in Costa Del Sol having a relaxed practice last night

while Tam White  sang Boz  apparently had a heart attack.

 Our thoughts are with Boz’s family at this very sad and difficult time.

Here is  a tribute page on the site where people can offer their thoughts and memories of Boz

Remembering Boz -




From the King Krimson label

Boz Burrell Has Died
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Fri., Sep 22, 2006

Details are now coming in surrounding the untimely death of ex-King Crimson singer and bassist, Boz Burrell who passed away yesterday.

I spoke to guitarist Neil Warden who told me that Boz had died at his Spanish home in Puerto Banus, Marbella, and not Edinburgh as had previously been reported.

Singer Tam White with friend Billy had been visiting Boz, and all three were ready to go out to a small party to play a few tunes with some friends. 

Neil went on to say "Tam was sitting in Boz's apartment singing when Boz picked up a guitar and sat back in his seat, and slumped over and passed away.  Efforts were made to revive him before the emergency services arrived but no luck."

Neil went on to pay tribute to his fellow musician and friend.

"Very sad, I'm very upset to say the least. Boz was one of the good guys, I'll never forget that impish smile and crazy humor, a sad loss indeed. I used to stand next to him on stage in 'The Groove Connection' and have a great laugh.

He was a great musician and a cool guy to say the least. He was like a long lost older brother to me; we were both into the same music and hit it off from first meeting.

A sad loss indeed. I can't stop thinking of him at present; my heart goes out to Kath his wife."
