Terry Reid is one of the most influential rock singers of our time/ Terry has influenced generations of singers and young bands such as Cheap Trick, Keith Richards, Jack White, The Black
Crows and Aerosmith/ Rob Zombie
was so struck by Terry's legend and music he included three of Reid's songs "Seed of Memory," "To Be Treated Rite," and "Brave Awakening," in The Devil's Rejects.
When Reid's first band, The Jaywalkers were named as a support act for The Rolling Stones
for their concert at the Royal Albert Hall, Graham Nash of The Hollies became friends with Reid at that concert and suggested The Jaywalkers sign up with Columbia Records/ Thus the start of serious rock and roll history!
Reid came to the attention of legendary hit producer Mickie Most who produced "Bang Bang, You're Terry Reid," and "The Terry Reid Album," which had the hit "Superlungs My Supergirl." That album also had the unforgettable classic "Stay With Me Baby
", which not only stands the test of time today, but which the iconic Aretha Franklin
commented "Two things are happening, London and Terry Reid."
When The Yardbirds disbanded, Page wanted Reid to fill the vocalist spot for his proposed new group, the New Yardbirds (which was to become Led Zeppelin). Reid had already committed to go on the road with Cream
(as an opening act on the 1968 US Tour). Reid suggested to Page that he consider a young Birmingham based singer, Robert Plant, instead/ Reid later was offered a position as a member of Deep Purple
but he declined due to contractual agreements.
In 1969, Reid supported British tours, notably Jethro Tull and Fleetwood Mac. Reid, Solley and Webb toured the United States again when he opened for The Rolling Stones
on their 1969 American Tour.
Reid eventually retired his solo career in 1981 to concentrate on session work, appearing on albums by Don Henley, Jackson Browne, UFO, High Stakes & Dangerous Men and Bonnie Raitt/ In the 1990s he also toured in the US and Hong Kong with ex-Rolling Stones guitarist Mick Taylor/ In late 2005, Reid returned to the UK for his first tour in years. One venue billed him as 'The Man with a Hell of a Story To Tell'.
Opening for Terry Reid is U.K.'s own Brandy
Row/ If Bob Dylan
and Johnny Thunders had a love-child - that love child's name would be Brandy
is a singer-songwriter who takes real life issues and transforms them into raw, poetic melodies. He has been at the forefront of London's underground rock n' roll scene for the past decade and is now embarking on his first ever tour of Los Angeles.
