I did say these news updates would be weekly(ish), however so much good music coming our way, including this new song from Toto, from their upcoming best of ’40 Trips Around the Sun’ due out in February…
Axe are back with a new album ‘The Last Offering’ in the summer via Escape Music.
Voodoo Vegas are working on their third album for release later this year and Robin George has a blues rock flavoured album ready to go very soon.
Five Grand Stereo release their new album ‘Sex & Money’ on 26 January – highly recommended album for lovers of power pop.
In a recent interview with ‘Classic Rock’ magazine Carl Palmer said there would be news on a new Asia line-up. Following the sad death of John Wetton in January last year, Yes bassist Billy Sherwood covered the band’s US dates, although he may be unlikely to be a full-time member. Geoff Downes will doubtless be involved and possibly guitarist Sam Coulson. Meanwhile, former Asia member John Payne has a new album out in February with Erik Norlander under the moniker Dukes of the Orient.
