2013. “A Rock­et Down Fal­con Street” by Leigh Stephens.

I played some bass and key­boards on this new album by my old Sil­ver Metre band-mate Leigh Stephens. Sil­ver Metre was the first band I played with after com­ing to the USA in 1969. I had met Leigh in Lon­don about six months ear­li­er and we talked about get­ting a band togeth­er. So the boil­ing hot sum­mer of 1969 I showed up in Venice Beach and Leigh and I have been friends ever since. Leigh was the orig­i­nal “Blue Cheer” gui­tarist who played on their clas­sic cov­er of the Eddie Cochrane song, “Sum­mer­time Blues”. Leigh was vot­ed amongst the top 100 best gui­tarists of all time by a “Rolling Stone Mag­a­zine” reader’s poll.
This album is all instru­men­tal.
