Bryan’s long-time musical associate, guitarist extraordinaire Chris Spedding joined forces with Ollie Thompson to form a formidable guitar duo during Bryan Ferry’s U.S tour this Autumn. Chris took over rhythm guitar duties from the much-lauded Neil Hubbard who had supplied his inimitable rhythmic stylings for the European leg of the tour.
Chris recently released his 12th original studio album ‘Pearls’ on Repertoire which is available from his website: chrisspedding.com
Chris has also recently formed the band King Mob with Sex Pistols bassist Glen Matlock, The Pretenders’ drummer Martin Chambers and two other formidable session musicians.
The Evening Standard’s piece from last week explains how the five got together.
You can catch Chris in action at Bryan’s shows in Shepherd’s Bush Empire on the 14th and 15th of December. (Few remaining tickets available here: SEE TICKETS )
