Travelling Hobo Shaggy!

Ive just came back from my spell of gigs in Luzern in Switzerland..   What a time I had away and what an amazing place with the best people..

Me , The Legend...Bill and the Flintmiester

I didnt really know what to expect at all as this was my first time away gigging in another country but I have to say..  this definately wont be my last..

The whole experience was great and I managed to make some great contacts from it all so il definately be back over there soon.

Heres a video of me playing in Legends bar which has to be the best bar in Luzern..its a bit dark as its from a little handycam but youll get the idea and theres a few clips from the train ride home in there too!! ..  A massive thanks to Bill for helping to make this possible..  I couldnt have done this without his help and also Flinty for helping to arrange it all.

And a few photos too ..

Bloody cold it was!

Top UK guitar vocalist.. hehehhehhe!!

NE1-FM 102.5 Update….

Soooo……. Yesterday was my visit to the NE1FM Radio Station in Newcastle as part of an interview and some live tracks. I managed to talk T-shirt Terry into coming through and doing some photos with me in the studio too which you can see below!

Me 'n' Mark @ NE1FM 102.5

Me 'n' Mark @ NE1FM 102.5

After driving around looking for the place we finally give in to phoning the studio and sounding like eejiots and the nice fellas from NE1 walked around the corner to meet us at the garage. Which was about 10 steps in walking distance from the place… DOH!!!

We met Mark who was going to be doing the interview, had a tab and then dived into the studio..



All was going well and I managed to squeeze in 3 live tracks.,. “All inside”, “ Judy let go” which is a new track which is going to be released on my 3rd album which will be available later this year. I then attempted a cover of a Wacko Jacko track and started in the completely wrong place and made a right bollocks of it..  hahah..  It was all good though .. and I played the “that’s the thing about live music” card!!

Marc was a great bloke and introduced me to some new great music too which I look forward to checking out online about the net.



WHERES THE  KEYS??? … At the beginning of the night mark gave the keys to Terry to go and grab a CD out the car for me and after the show was finished … Mark came out of the studio to let us out … “Wheres the keys??” ..  No-one had the keys on them and we were locked in for another 30mins after that .. looking around for them in the studio and other rooms while Mark kept running back in and out to cue a track up in between spoaching about like a mad man..   Terry finally found them near the doors on the floor  and we finally got out and got our trophy for finding them… A KFC ON THE WAY HOME!! Finger licking good!!



Once again.. it was a great night and I finally got to meet up with the guys n gals from NE1 FM..  Unfortunately there was a bit of a problem with the stream and online listeners couldnt log in from the website so my phone was reeeeeeeeeeeed hot with…. apart from that I had a cracking night.

Mark doing his thang!!

Lionheart Radio Interview and Live Session.

Lionheart Radio is a community run radio station that broadcasts from Alnwick in Northumberland and I landed an interview and also to play some live tracks of mine on there on the 2nd June via Derek from Acoustic Magic.


I turned up around 6:30pm on the Tuesday night with guitar in hand not really knowing what to expect as far as radio interviews go. After trailing up 3 or 4 flights of stairs I finally found my way to the reception of Lionheart Radio.. only to be told by the lovely gal on reception “you look out of breath .. didn’t you see the lift?” .. good job I had a little time before Paul turned up for his show to catch my breath back ..hahaha .. The receptionist also gave me a look at there stats and stuff on there computer which was cool and told me a bit of info about the station ….

Then Paul turned up … Paul Shucksmith has a show on there every Tuesday at 7:00pm and has been featuring the players from Acoustic magic on a monthly basis and theres been some great live music involved.. he’s definitely worth listening in for and I cant wait to hear the upcoming shows..

Paul went into the studio after splashing out the cups of Tea and I followed him in not long after with guitar in hand and a handful of CD’s. That’s when the nerves kicked in slightly .. we didn’t really have any preperation before hand and in between the song he told me that he doesn’t really plan out the show and likes it to just go along unplanned.. which I thought was a bit strange at first but the guy obviously knows what he is doing and once we got on air together he instantly makes you feel as if you’ve known him your whole life… and the show just all dropped into place from my point of view.. Paul instantly makes you feel relaxed and does a hell of a job at Lionheart. Top Fella!!!!!

Before I knew it the show had passed over 2 Hours of been on air .. I managed to play quite a few live tracks on air and also some tracks off the cd’s I took along. We had a heap of people emailing in and asking questions and asking for requests which really made the night that extra bit special.

So from shaggy the radio star!! Thanks for all the support from all who listened in and the show is repeated this Monday coming at 10pm incase you missed it…. And for those of you who did miss it , without a good excuse…. SHAMMMMMME ON YOU!!!

Don’t forget to check out Paul’s upcoming shows and drop in at the website to say hi….

Thanks again!! Shaggy!
