Joe plays on ‘My Kinda Heaven’

Last summer I had the pleasure of recording drums for Mick McConnell's solo album 'My Kinda Heaven'. I got the call after we came back from playing in South Africa with Deep Purple and Uriah Heep. Trevor Bolder, Uriah Heep's bass player, is also featured on the album and he recommended me to Mick. You may be aware that Trevor also played with Wishbone Ash back in the day - so that's two members of the Ash clan on this CD. Mick's regular gig is with Smokie but he's been saving up songs for a solo album for some time. He was a great guy to work with and some of his enthusiasm for scuba diving rubbed off on me - I'm currently working to get my PADI!

Here are the details if you fancy getting yourself a copy:
