THE EARL SLICK BAND [GEANNULEERD]

Guitarist Earl Slick never had a plan B. Still doesn’t. In fact, he doesn’t believe in backup plans. “If you have a backup plan,” said the guitarist who for decades worked alongside rock royalty including David Bowie and John Lennon among others, “then eventually you become the backup plan.” Which explains, and fuels, Slick’s new album: “Fist Full of Devils.”

What better way to celebrate the album release than a tour filled with intimate rock n roll shows? Featuring a set list of new and old material, including that of Bowie & Lennon, and an all-star band including vocalist Jesse Smith (The Classic Rock Show, Romances), Ben Ellis & Seamus Beaghen (Iggy Pop) and Lee John (A Bowie Celebration, SayReal); these shows promise to be a post-covid rock n roll shot in the arm!

Harnessing his musical roots as a child from the 60s when bluesrock pushed its way to the front of the line, and incorporating his decades of experience as one of the most sought-after touring musicians in the business, Fistful is Slick as he’s been from the start: an artist who fully mines the depths of the blues and guitar by drawing on a toolkit assembled from blues to glam to punk to rockabilly. Released on 2 July 2021, the 11-track instrumental album is no retread retrospective of Slick’s run of 40 years as a professional guitarist; it’s an audible demonstration of a virtuoso still pushing deep into rock and roll’s blues roots. The album is acrobatics without a net. He would have it no other way. From the moment he picked up a guitar, “I’ve never wanted to do anything else.”
