It’s always a kick and immense pleasure working with this fine musician.
Here’s a little video snip from 2019 of a quick rehearsal on board the The Mariner Of The Seas cruise ship. During this sailing, Hux (Parthenon Huxley) joined me at my solo show in Studio B as my special guest. We had a blast! Click on the photo to play the video.

We love this great track. Performed by Tom………. way back in 2012.
(Songwriters: Peter Green/Clifford George Adams)

Here’s a little note from Tom about it;

‘I recently rediscovered this track and many others on my PC, from when I was playing the pub circuit in the south west UK around 2012.

I needed to make a CD as a reminder of what I used to do to make a living.

The track was the idea of a great mate and fine musician, John Archer. Originally composed and played by PETER GREEN from Fleetwood Mac. Interestingly we (The Zombies) we’re inducted last year at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with Stevie Nicks the lead singer. So strange!

Happy memories cutting my teeth to sometimes only a few and sometimes packed people in the pubs. Hope you like the track’.

Boom.

Tom’s recent solo show in Studio B on board The Mariner Of The Seas cruise ship was quite exciting and packed to the rafters with quite a welcoming crowd. One of the highlights was his performance and arrangement of ‘Flight Of The Bumblebee’( written by composer Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov).

The musicality involved in performing this is just a bit jaw dropping ……especially watching Tom’s fingers move at approximately 150 BPM. In fact, he practiced over 6 months to accomplish this ( and continues to practice playing this song everyday).

Here’s what he had to say about his first public performance of this song which he debuted on the ship that night:

…..’so in Somerset where I live ( AKA ‘Zummerzet’, where the cider apples grow) a lot of CIDER is made and drunk. Somehow the bees find their way to this tempting brew on the farms and get slightly sozzled. So if there are a few notes going astray in this piece please don’t blame me, blame the cider!’

So without any further ado , we’d like to share this little video that captured Tom’s Bumblebee. Sit back and take it in.

Thought we’d share this lovely video someone shot of The Zombies gig at the Stadstheater Zoetermeer on July 28, 2018.

What a great little slice of how incredible this world class band sounds…….especially LIVE.

No further comment is necessary about this performance, except……. please be sure to check things out around the 3:37 mark.
