Following message we`ve got from Rudolf Schubert from Germany:
Bob Catley of Magnum about Jim Lea`s visit on Magnum`s new album
Fireworks melodic rock magazine June 2007:
The latest issue of Fireworks, Melodic Rock magazine has a long interview with Bob Catley of Magnum about their great new album. In the interview Bob is asked how Jimmy Lea came to guest on the album.
Bob - We`ve known Jimmy a long time, he was in the studio next door mixing a live album or something. Anyway, the kitchen inbetween the studios is the meeting place and he was in there, and Tony had written this song `You`ll Never Sleep` with a keyboard line on there that was kind of a string sound, a pizzicato thing. He said to Jimmy, ``Do you fancy playing that bit on your violin?`` and Jim said ``Hang On, I have`nt played violin for ages`` - but Tony talked him into it. So he got his violin out of the attic and came in and did it really quickly - he was just in the right place at the right time really. He`s a nice bloke, as are all the blokes in Slade - it`s just a pity that we won`t be doing that one on stage because we could get him up to play it, could`nt we ?
The magazine also contains excellent reviews of the B sides, Flame and Nobodys Fools reissues.
