DRUMSTICKS & STONES

The Jones Gang live @ The Cavern Club - Liverpool

posted by Ian Roberts



He's been with three of the biggest bands in the world - The Small Faces, The Faces and The Who. Now his own band are becoming famous.
Kenney Jones will play his first gig on British soil since the release of his new band's album in Liverpool and he is raring to go.
Called Any Day Now it is not released in Britain yet but there will be copies available down at The Cavern next Thursday and Friday where the supergroup will be playing.

The Jones Gang will also be joined by a 'special guest' - someone who is an 'adopted' member and who also designed their album cover - Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood.
Mike Cobley, of the Jones Gang touring entourage, said that Ron will play on one of the two Liverpool nights - "but at this stage we don't know which one".

The Jones Gang is made up of three musicians who have performed on some of the most popular and critically-acclaimed rock recordings of all time.

Kenney, Robert Hart (Bad Company) and Rick Wills (Bad Company and Foreigner) - have sold a combined 50 million records.
With a little help from original members of The Faces - Ronnie Wood and Ian McLagan - this trio of well-respected British rockers have created a stunning debut album and are ready to show it off.
They are paying three prestigious UK dates and Liverpool is lucky enough to get TWO of them - the other is in Kent.
Kenney told the Liverpool Echo in an exclusive chat: "Any Day Now has 11 songs co-written by Robert Hart and produced by Gary Stevenson.
It rocks hard with sweeping harmonies, some well-crafted melodies and some rootsy guitar riffs. The vocals are something else - Robert's work is brilliant."


For the recording, Jones (drums), Wills (bass) and Hart (vocals) enlisted a who's who of British rock lore, including the Rolling Stones axeman Ronnie who performed on the song Gypsy Lane; Gary Grainger (who has played with Rod Stewart, Ringo Starr), Ian McLagan (Small Faces/Faces) and Dave 'Bucket' Colwell ((Bad Company).

So what can we expect when the band get to Liverpool?
After all, there's so many classics in there everything from the Small Faces' Lazy Sunday, All Or Nothing to The Faces' Stay With Me and Maggie May to The Who's Substitute and Won't Get Fooled Again.

Says Kenney: "I have not played The Cavern before so I am really looking forward to it. I have a real soft spot for the city. I am from the East End and we can relate to Scousers.
If you play the Cavern you get a brick in the wall of fame -I'm genuinely really pleased about that."


Kenney was in The Who line-up when they played the Live Aid concert in 1985 and says he is going to donate the drum skins he used to the Cavern.

He is obviously having a ball with his new band. "It's the most creative outfit I have been in since The Small Faces.
It's going to be a great couple of nights. Wherever we've been there's always been friends out there who come and join us for numbers - Pete Townshend came up on stage in one show."


Kenney says: "Someone asked us what type of music we play. That's a difficult one.
"I guess the only way to answer that question is come and see us..."
