SON OF MY FATHER
Last time I saw Tony Hooper, he pressed into my hand an early copy of his son, Nick Elliott?s home-made CD. Just released on Strawbwseb is a review/interview with Nick by our very own Lindsay Sorrell. Check it out at:

THE DRUMS, THE DRUMS ..
Picking up the latest Computer Music Special on Home Recording, with a DVD with a huge selection of drum samples, on reading the small print I find that the drums have been played by none other that Strawbs? very own Adam Falkner! Pick up a copy and you can have Adam drumming for you in the comfort of your own home studio!
