I had the v great pleasure not too long ago of seeing #BrianWilson and his band perform LIVE in 2017 at #Glastonbury. It was an incredible show.
The icing on the cake was meeting up afterwards to say hello to #BlondieChaplin, #AlJardine and #dariansahanaja .
Really looking forward to the upcoming ‘Something Great from ‘68′ tour with these fine musicians.
Brian Wilson and
The Zombies ……what a lineup !!

Sharing a few snaps from our current USA tour. Today The Zombies are at the
ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME where we will be performing. It’s a very special day.
A special moment at the 2019 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction ceremony.
Really enjoyed a great hang with the super talented Danny Seraphine, one of the founding members of the band #Chicago.
Check out his current band- Danny Seraphine’s CTA!
The man is one KILLER drummer.
Here’s a fun photo from a recent gig at the Charltons Community Centre where Tom was the special guest of the
fantastic Martin Emslie and the Castle Cary Choir. It was a true honour being a part of this special evening. #Sanctus #LIVEmusic #castlecary #electricguitar #guitarSolo #communityspirit
Tom and his dear mate Martin Emslie had the great pleasure of visiting backstage with Rick Wakeman who performed Friday evening at The #WestlandsTheatreYeovil #UK #rickwakeman #WestlandsTheatre #yeovil #worldclassmusicians
Tom asked that we share some lovely photos from a very special experience he had this week while he was out on tour in the USA with The Zombies.
NOTE- A quick update – ‘Harmonica Pete’ who is shown in the last photo, sadly passed on January 19, 2022 at the age of 98. We send our thoughts and condolences out to his beautiful family.
The gentleman shown with Tom in the first two photos is Stuart Hedley. Mr. Hedley is a Pearl Harbor survivor.
The last shot is of Pete DuPre, who was a medic during the war.
Huge thanks to John Riedy Photography who was the photographer of the ones with Tom and Mr. Hedley. The snap of Mr. DuPre was taken by
his daughter Mary Ann DuPre.
Here are some thoughts directly from Tom about meeting these two amazing heroes.
‘It was such an honour to meet these guys and to tell them about my father surviving Changi Prisoner of war camp from 1942-45 in Burma on the infamous bridge on the river Kwai (which was later made into a film).
I gave Stuart a HUGE HUG, I’m so blessed to be here because of the sacrifice made by so many’.

Tom’s darling daughter is a big fan of her dad’s music!
Sharing a very lovely moment in time – ‘Past and Present ‘.
Here are two wonderful photos of Tom with the legendary Hilton Valentine. Hilton was the artist who wrote the iconic guitar part in ‘House of The Rising Sun’ by the Animals.
He had recently come to see The Zombies and Tom play at the Calvin Theatre Northampton MA.
‘House of the Rising Sun’ was the very first song Tom ever played on stage.
Sadly Hilton passed on 29, January 2021. Hilton’s legend and music will live on for many years to come.
