paddy goes to holyhead

Paddy Goes To Holyhead are to return for another craic with a gig on St Patrick's Night at The Cavern, Raynes Park, London on Saturday 17th March.

The band supposedly played their last ever gig three years ago at the much missed Merton Manor Club, London in celebration of their 30th anniversary.

MetalTalk didn't believe a word of it and we smashed the bookies by predicting their reformation before the Paddies came back for the craic last year with a sold out show at The Cavern Freehouse on St Patrick's Night.

The line-up for St Patrick's Night 2018 is:

Danny Hynes - (Weapon UK)
Andy Burgess - Guitar/Vocals (Praying Mantis)
Chris Troy - Bass/Vocals (Praying Mantis)
Tino Troy - Guitar/Vocals (Praying Mantis)
Darren Lee - Drums (Weapon UK)

Deborah Bonham/Paul Rodgers guitarist Peter Bulllick is one of many guests who will be appearing with the band on the night.

Past members include Andy Scott and Mick Tucker (Sweet), original Weapon drummer Bruce Bisland, now filling the drum stool in Sweet, Mal McNulty, current vocalist with Slade and a former member of Sweet, Phil Lanzon (Uriah Heep), another former member of Sweet... there seems to a bit of a Sweet trend going on here... Syd Twynham (Les Gray's Mud) and Pete Bullick.

Paddy Goes To Holyhead will be playing a set of traditional Irish tunes and Shamrocking classics. Tickets are available direct from the venue. Get them in advance to be sure, to be sure.

Paddy's vocalist Danny Hynnes will also be appearing at The Cavern in Raynes Park, London before then with his own band, Weapon UK, on Wednesday 17th January.

The NWOBHM band also feature original guitarist Jeff Summers. Weapon UK will also be paying tribute to Fast Eddie Clarke on the evening. Danny Hynnes says:

"Eddie was personally responsible for getting Weapon the support slot on Motörhead's 'Ace Up Yer Sleeve' tour in 1980. Although I have only seen him occasionally since then. He was always supportive of us and went out of his way to offer advice to our then young band.

"Eddie would borrow Jeff's gear on occasions on this tour. He really liked his guitar sound. A seriously underrated guitar player, his playing had great personality and life. A nice man indeed who lived an extraordinary life.

"RIP dear friend and rock legend Fast Eddie Clarke and THANK YOU for believing in us."
