TED MCKENNA AND THE PAUL ROSE BAND

Postby SUBY1974 » 01 Aug 2011, 21:06

My friend Susie of Seafieldfoxes recently saw Ted Mckenna ( former drummer of RG's from 1978 - 1981) recently. He played with the Paul Rose Band. Susie says he is really good and well worth seeing. Interestingly we thought Ted lived in Glasgow but it happens by a strange twist of fate that he only lives a few miles from Susie and actually Susie saw him play in her hometown. RG synchronicity working here again. Anyway he is a brilliant drummer.

Paul Rose is a very good guitarist who Rory handpicked after viewing a thousand videos of guitarists for a competition in the late eighties. Paul Rose was walking along the high street and saw the competition advertised and entered for the hell of it. He won the competition and the prize was a Fend Stat guitar which he has to this day. He met Rory four times and Donal lent him equipment to record his CDs. Also now he plays with Ted. In effect Rory gave him his big break and he is an established guitarist. Rory said of Paul " A hot player with a hot future"

Here are some links of Paul Rose Band/ Paul Rose' s story and Ted Mckenna playing the drums. Subrata. x
