A photograph of STEVE CORBETT (Dr Hackenbush/Fandango Brothers) and STEVE FIRTH (Mulesweat/Vamp) at a VAMP gig in Chesterfield on Saturday the 24th Sept 2016. Was good to catch up again with these old guitar sparring pals from South Yorkshire.
A photograph of us with Grant Evelyn, formerly of Hot Chocolate, who came up and sang 'GRAPEVINE' with us at the FOX and HOUNDS in Stony Stratford, Milton Keynes last night the 1st of July 2016. Grant and I played a lot of gigs together in the 90's.

Over the last year Howard and I have been gigging around under an assortment of names. I've also been recording a lot of new material for forthcoming projects. However, we've decided to do the RED HERRING Band again but this time we're focusing in on early 60's rnb, blues and blues rock from the period. We've tried this out at a few gigs and it appears to be working. At the same time we're going to playing as the HEARFIELD-BLUES band again. We're still in the process of deciding and rehearsing precisely what we're going to be playing but it will include a lot of the Rory Gallagher material we did before, probably with additions, as well as a fistful of originals and reworked material from Johnny Winter, Savoy Brown, John Mayall, Albert King, Muddy Waters and others. Watch this page for details and dates for both bands.

I've been wading through hours and hours of RED HERRING gig vids from 2002 to 2010 and thought I'd bundle a whole whack of clips together with the best demo version of FLYING TIGERS we ever recorded .. and believe me we made quite few but just couldn't nail it the way we wanted. However, it'll no doubt be attempted again one of these days. So in the meantime here is what I call a short vid of The RED HERRING Years.
