May I present to you a full YouTube playlist of performances from the Dave Stark Five and Friends jam session at the Castle, Finchley Road from the 6th of Feb 2011. Featuring myself as the big O, Glen Knowler as George Harrison, Brian Kotz and tributes to the late Gary Moore.
For the first time in over 22 years Lefty and Nelson Wilbury of the Traveling Wilburys have performed together. On the 6th of February, Glen Knowler and myself performed as George Harrison and Roy Orbison at the Castle, Finchley Road.
And the great news is, we’re doing it all over again! On the 6th of March we’ll be right back there giving you Orbison, Harrison, Wilburys and maybe even a bit of Beatles. Want to see what it’s like? Have a look…
