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.

RAW, ROUGH AND BRILLIANT IN 1988/89: Ever wish you could say..”I saw The Quireboys before they went big..before they recorded all their albums and before they had been playing and recording for 30 years!”? Well, here’s your chance. Here’s a 47 minute VHS rescued gem from a show back in 1988/89 recorded at a pub in the U.K. (thanks to Michael Max John Wormald) just prior to the release of their debut album “A Bit Of What You Fancy”. Band members were Spike, Nigel Mogg, Guy Bailey, Ginger, Chris Johnstone and Nick Connell. The songs are in the raw…rough…brilliant!! Enjoy.
