Pete meets New Orleans funk legend Eddie Bo backstage at the Marseille gig, October 20th
Bassist Pete Shand came very close to purchasing a second hand Jimmy Smith record at a French market stall earlier this week, sources close to the band reveal. In the end, after considerable deliberation, the 6'3" tall musician and part-time disc jockey rejected the disc in favour of a "Best of the Meters" compilation. "Despite the title, there were several tracks on there that I"d never even heard of, and I only had 10 Euros on me," said Peter, 46. " I had to borrow the shortfall from Simon." Drummer Simon Allen had purchased an album moments earlier by Clarence Wheeler & The Enforcers, even though he was only familiar with one track.
Touring British funk band falls for hilarious Bordeaux shopping centre car park advertising gimmick.
