Dave Wakeling The Beat Goes On

In the early 70’s in the UK, there was a great deal of debate across the land whether there was life on Mars. However in certain parts of the country where job prospects looked barren for young and old alike, the matter of paying the rent took precedence over such trifling discussions.

Sam Moore The Soul Man

As Georges Bizet, the famous French composer once wrote, "music, what a splendid art. And what a sad profession." Bizet did not live long enough to see his operatic masterpiece ‘Carmen’ become a major success. The statement certainly rings true for Bizet, who died from angina, aged just 36.

Wilko Johnson On That Thing

Robert Johnson, the Grandfather of Rock & Roll sold his soul to the devil at the crossroads in return to become a guitar legend. Probably one of the greatest rock and roll myths to date. However what is far more important and indeed realistic is Johnson’s life and how an individual became obsessed with music and its performance. This is the real world of rock and roll. As Johnson plyed his trade and sacrifices were made. A legend was born.

At ZANI’s office, we often have a flippant discussion on which fictional address we would like to reside at. Our favourite fantasy abode is the famous Rock and Roll address of 1134 North Beechwood Drive, Los Angles California USA. The residence of sixties pop legends The Monkees.

From the words of The Comic Strip’s Bad News, “Sound checks are very boring”.  The fine tuning of the sound is completed hours before the audience arrives, then the band has to find ways to kill time before showtime… which can vary from having a drink to just going for a walk, anything to shake off the combination of pre-gig nerves and boredom.

Butterfly On A Wheel

The public and the media often forget how dangerous The Rolling Stones were perceived in the sixties, not just by the press but by the establishment. Not for drunken antics or aggressive behaviour. No, they were feared as revolutionaries, capable of uniting the youth of the sixties and bringing the country down.
