The Musician presents…

Jim Gannon's All Stars
featuring Jim Gannon (Black Widow), Mike Moran (Queen), Pete Dennis (Tim Hardin) and Pick Withers (Dire Straits)
Sunday 12th May
Free entry Book Launch 6:00 - 7:30

To Celebrate the U.K. Launch of ‘Celie’s Book Of Quotes’, a memoir of Celebrity Interviews by Celie Gannon, Black Widow members, Kip Trevor and Jim Gannon (Tim Hardin/Fox) will be assisted by Ben Trevor (gtr/vox) and present for the first time, selected unplugged Black Widow songs. Following this, a truly All-Star Band will deliver ’60’s gems, R&B classics and killer blues.

Joining Jim, Kip and Ben onstage, will be special guests Dave 'Pick' Withers (Dire Straits) on drums and Pete Dennis on bass (Freedom/Peddlers/Tim Hardin). Completing the band is Leeds born keyboard maestro Mike Moran, who co-wrote the ‘Barcelona’ album with Freddie Mercury and worked extensively with Queen, George Harrison, Paul Simon, Ozzy Osbourne, Rod Stewart, David Bowie and many more.

During the ‘60’s, Jim, Kip, ‘Pick’ and Pete worked in a number of memorable Leicester bands; Broodly-Hoo, Pesky Gee, Spring, Deuce-Coupe and (Steve) Fearn’s Brass Foundry.

To start the evening, Celie’s presentation will include recollections, not only of her encounters with stars of music and film while working at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in ‘60’s London, but also from her celebrity interviews with international superstars right through to the ‘90’s as rock journalist for ‘The Australian’ national newspaper while based in Sydney.

Celie’s wide range of stories will surprise and delight, with quotes from Paul McCartney, Jimi Hendrix, Brian Ferry, Buddy Rich, George Benson, Elton John, right through to Willie Nelson, Edna Everage and Tom Jones. The book is a brilliant read, and rare author-signed copies will be on sale.
