Frenchie is very VERY cold in Northern Ireland with the blues/hard rock group, The Answer from New Castle.
So, I did a bit of research and found some stuff out!
The band consists of some rad lads (ha.) Cormac Neeson (Vocals), Paul Mahon (Guitar), Micky Waters(Bass Guitar), and James Heatley(Drums).
The Answer was voted 2005’s “Best New Band” by Classic Rock Magazine, and “Best British Newcomer” in the 2006 Kerrang! Awards.
They’ve supported Whitesnake, opened for Deep Purple, Aerosmith, toured with ACDC and, my favorite discovery; have been accompanied on stage by Paul Rogers (FREE and Bad Company’s singer!) during the Planet Rock Radio Christmas Party, on 11 December 2007 at the Islington Academy, London.
As a BIG fan of Free and Deep Purple (Oh! and ROCK) I cannot wait to hear what the next record sounds like with Frenchie involved!
Positive and warm thoughts to the lads in Ireland- I’ll have more news later in January when The Answer comes to Texas!
