" THE PHIL BRODIE BAND"
Although the bands are musically different
they share the same history.
PHIL BRODIE BAND (formed by 3 Bitter Suite members) Sheffield
based, this outfit [formed late 2001] consists of the very respected bass guitarist
Gerry Scanlan, Neil Wathey on drums, plus guitar virtuoso Phil Brodie.
Phil is noted as being one of the top guitarists of his style, " his
guitar playing was indistinguishable from Gary Moore himself " .quote
from BluesMatters, He plays his guitars with such power, yet with so much passion..
.It is very exciting that these 3 talented professional musicians have come together
again forming this "Power Blues Trio" to play tribute to Gary Moore,
Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray
Vaughan, Peter Green, John Mayall, Albert King, BB King and
other rock/swing/blues greats. (Also Deep
Purple, Free, AC/DC,
Bad Company, Whitesnake, Thin Lizzy, Van Halen
and other important classics for the rockier Bitter Suite venues)
