This is Kenn Peterson, friend of Kenny. He went to the emergency room on sunday after an unexpected event.His condition is very serious, but still in flux. He will be aware of your good wishes. You may not have been able to get through on his home line, but it's now repaired and I'll try to answer or get back to you as soon as I can. I don't know what's going to happen, but I know he's tough. He's the John McCain of rock drummers.

Ken's in ICU and not doing well I'm told. He could use your prayers or best wishes and good thoughts, whatever works for ya'.......

I've known Ken since the 1970's.

He drummed for Off Broadway and Badfinger among others.

Ken is best known for his Circus and Old West poster collections.

Ken's also a drum collector and owns some of the rarest sets around.

Most important of all, Ken's a good guy. I'm hoping for the best.

A GROUP of musicians from the world of blues and dance music have come together to record a charity single as a tribute to their friend Nick Bell, a gifted blues guitarist/singer and ’70s tour manager for Badfinger and Deep Purple. 

Nick, whose life was cut short in March this year at the age of 65 after a brave battle against pancreatic cancer, had spent many years based in Southend, Essex, before retiring to his home village of Jordans, buckinghamshire.

His best friend Richard Cornish, a keyboard player for ‘90s dance band Taste Xperience, decided to release a song he recorded with Nick in 2013 as a tribute to his friend and a way of raising money and awareness for two cancer charities.

Both charities are close to Richard’s heart as his wife Rachael is currently fighting a rare cancer – and it was Nick who introduced the couple.

Musicians from Nick’s Southend-based band The Reeceders were keen to get involved too, as was Taste Xperience producer Russell Lee. Other friends have also generously given their time helping with the artwork, CD design and promotion of this incredible, magical fundraising scheme to make sure all money raised by the sales of the CD go straight to the two worthy causes.

Richard said: “The single is a ‘thank you’ to the hospice who cared so well for Nick and his family in his last few weeks of his life. I also wanted to raise awareness about my wife Rachael’s rare bile duct cancer (cholangiocarcinoma), which affects around 1,000 people a year in the UK. 
“The song Foolish Though It Seems is about Rachael and was written shortly before we got married in May 2013. It was through our friendship with Nick that we met in 2011. It was a match made in heaven, a second chance at happiness neither had ever dreamed would be possible. 
“For our story to have begun under the godfather-like eyes of Nick, it seemed only fitting that the song chosen to commemorate him was one we had recorded together in our studio all those years ago.”


RIP Nicky Bell

曲作りとボーカルでは Natural Gas の主力ではなかった Peter Wood と Jerry Shirley が新たに作ったグループ。おいおい、大丈夫かよ と思ったが、大丈夫。 今回もボーカルでは全然主力ではないが、10曲中6曲の作者に Peter Wood の名がある。

Les Nichol は Les Nicol とか Les Nicholl と表記されていることもあって、はっきりしなかったんだけど、1960年代末期に Methuselah のメンバーでした。 Methuselah は解散後に 2つのグループになり、ひとつは John Gladwin と Terry Wincott の Amazing Blondel 、もうひとつが Les Nichol と Craig Austin の Distant Jim 。 その後は Coast Road Drive とか Leo Sayer に曲を書いたりしているようです。
 
 
Norwegian singer-songwriter の Even Johansen が Magnet という名前で2005年に発表した Hold On という同名曲もあって紛らわしい。
