Touch and go - Cozy Powell/ ELP Tribute (Lord Mike & Reubes)

Touch and go - Cozy Powell/ ELP Tribute (Lord Mike & Reubes)

A tribute to the memory and lasting legacy of one of the world's greatest drummer's, Cozy Powell, who sadly lost his life on this day in 1998. Not to be forgotten are the remaining two thirds of this incredible line up (the virtuosic Keith Emerson and timeless Greg Lake). This production was put together at The Porridge Pot recording/ visual studio in Methwold, Norfolk which is available to hire at very competitive rates. Special production offers (covering all recording/ mixing/ mastering time): Single - £150 4 Track EP - £400 8 Track Album - £750 Please check out out website for more info and get in touch to say hello! Website: Email contact: About the cover: At an early age, my parent's introduced me to the classic rock gods (Deep Purple, The Who, Rainbow, Zeppelin etc) alongside seminal works from the progressive titan's of that era including those from Pink Floyd, Genesis and of course, Emerson, Lake & Powell/ Palmer! Having heard this particular track in my infancy and returning to it once my fondness for Cozy Powell's drumming had matured, it really resonated with me as a powerful number that made for a fitting legacy piece that should be shared with future generation's. Dad and I were feeling the frustrations of being kept from performing with our various band's (The Pure Floyd Show, Light Skies Darken etc) and so decided to work on our first ever collaboration video and considering our shared passion for all things ELP and dad's Keith Emerson inspirations/ roots, it made sense to pick this brilliant track that shines brightly within the trio's impressive catalogue. We had so much fun working on this project and hope that it will raise a few spirits and smiles while we wait for live music and normality to return. The choice of this track also carries a double meaning: as we are based so closely to RAF Lakenheath (which plays an important role in our lives) it felt fitting to choose a song that features flying terminology in the title! Stay safe and keep music alive! Reubes + Mike
We All Die Young - Steel Dragon Vocal Cover

We All Die Young - Steel Dragon Vocal Cover

The movie Rockstar is where it all started for me (alongside a promotional DVD for Don't let the bells end' by The Darkness and a tape of Roger Waters The Wall live in Berlin). Ironically (for fans of the movie) I studied every move, look, saying, song, outfit, style portrayed in this rock n roll classic and now, 21 years on, am covering one of the most important songs of my life. I am a drummer/ sound engineer/ teacher by trade but I thought I'd push myself out of my comfort zone to attempt something vocally that I would never normally touch. Only 3 years ago I was terrified at the thought of singing in front of anyone, let alone recording and sharing a vocal performance, but as the song says 'We all die young' and it's important to do these things while we are able. I know I certainly can't sing this legendary piece like the unworldly Miljenko Matijević but I've given it all I've got. I would just like to add that, I wish not to cause any offence with the song title at this very delicate time for everyone (some of my family are currently suffering with symptoms). The lyrics of the song relate to pursing your dreams as we are only here for a short time and even in the last few months I have sadly heard of to many who have been taken to young (if there ever is a right age). While the lyrics aren't directly referencing the pandemic, I strongly and passionately believe that love, family and friends (and the dreams we have) are all that's important on this Earth and we should treasure them while we have the chance.
