Johnny Guitar Deps Tony Cawson & Steve Gilroy

14 June, 2013 | Tubesnake News

Guitarist Tom has been gigging in Eilat in Southern Israel this last month so we’ve just completed six gigs with guitar deps. We’d just like to say thanks to Tony Cawson for covering The Market Tavern, Chester-le-Street and The Barley Mow, Birtley. Guitarist Tony is actually one of the founder members of Tubesnake and played in the band for the first three years beginning in 1992, re-joining for a further three years starting in 1998 before moving on to play in Doctor Sunshine and Skint. We dragged him out of retirement and brought him back up to speed with three practice sessions at Rocking Horse Rehearsal Rooms in Durham City. Many thanks also to Steve Gilroy for covering The Three Tuns in Gateshead, The John Duck in Durham City, The Golden Fleece in Silksworth and Coundon WMC. Steve plays guitar in The Steve Gilroy Band (SGB) and The Dirty South and being an active player he was quite happy to learn our set by candlelight in the privacy of his own bedroom so no rehearsals required there then. Great work lads, and we’ve a feeling we may be using you again in the near future!
