The Quireboys are interviewed by Guy Bellamy as part of his Great Music Stories on 107 Meridian FM during The Quireboys headlining HRH AOR tour in England in March 2016.
A one hour interview special recorded from the O2 Academy in London, England, featuring The Quireboys, Hardcore Superstar, Bonafide, The Texas Flood and 13 Stars.
Interviews with: Spike, Keith Weir, Guy Griffin, Pontus Snibb, Joakim Berg, Niklas Matsson, Tom Sawyer, Tom Williams and Hoss Thompson.
Here is a short little interview from the 1990’s with Rudy Richman (former QB drummer), Chris Johnstone (former QB keys) and Guy Griffin (guitar) during the A Bit Of What You Fancy tour to Japan. Rudy talks about what he liked about playing in a British band and his respect for Spike’s attitude. Griff and Chris talk about the style of music The Quireboys play and what influenced it.
In conversation with Rudy recently, he said that this interview took place on their first tour to Japan. The fans there would meet them at the airport with gifts and the lobbies of the hotels were packed with fans every day. They played several shows there of between 2000- 4000 capacity venues and on some days spent 8 hours doing interviews where they were split up into groups such as this one.
Hope you enjoyed the memory tidbits from Rudy and stay tuned to Spike’s social media and website for more great conversations, comments and memories from previous and current members of The Quireboys.
The Quireboys will be touring the U.K for the month of March. On this tour they will be accompanied by Hardcore Superstar, The Texas Flood, Screaming Eagles, Massive Wagons, Bonafide, Thirteen Stars and Skam (see graphic).
After a busy December schedule where The Quireboys played a whopping 17 days out of 23, the band is rested and had hit the road again with full electric shows in Norway, Switzerland, Germany and Italy. For a full list of currently scheduled shows, check out the Tour Dates page.
Here is a video clip from Spike and Tyla’s Hot Knives sold-out show October 25th at The Borderline in honour of the late Paul Hornby. They close off the night with one of Paul’s favorite songs by The Rolling Stones and the whole place raises their glass in his honour.
