Gentle Giant

The Album Three Friends was recorded at Advision  and Command Studios in 1972. At the time of recording the track Peel The Paint Derek, the singer, told myself and Gary, the guitarist, to go into the recording room and “do something” for about two minutes. The live improvisation that Gary and I made became a section to Peel The Paint.

    I really like your playing on the 3 Friends tours; the stuff on You Tube, particularly Empty City, is really nice. It was creative, in the pocket, and musical.

    It’s wonderful to see you pay such an amazing tribute to what I consider to be the most underappreciated band of the 70s! Keep up the good work!
