BBC Radio 2

"It really is a fabulous album...gorgeous" Janice Long, BBC Radio 2, 10-10-09 “...It's just great, it's great songs on it - JohnnieWalker, BBC Radio 2, 18-09-09. “It’s absolutely brilliant.....he’s found his voice!” Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2 30-12-09 “Don’t...

“Henry Priestman’s songwriting skills have been honed through work with cult acts and chart-toppers, and his wry observations have been finely tuned into the kind of songs it’s near impossible not to like." ****

Honoured to be invited to play at the surprise party for legendary DJ Billy Butler at the Cavern last night, which he knew absolutely nothing about...they snuck him into the building via the backstage lift on the pretext that someone had been sick on the main stairs in...worked a treat, he appeared onstage to be confronted by his friends, a smattering of entertainers, plus some dodgy musicans (ie us lot: Pete Riley, Les Glover, Ian McNabb, Ian Prowse etc), all there to pay homage to the great man, who's helped us all so much with his support over the years.
Never played The Cavern before, so that's that one ticked off, and great to join in with the two Ians (McNabb & Prowse) on a spirited rendition of Twist and Shout.
Good on yer, Bill! 🙂
