Enjoy a very special evening with Don Powell, the charismatic drummer of Black Country rock legends Slade!
Ably assisted by rock giant’s Poet Laureate Paul Cookson and singer/songwriter Les Glover, you can expect conversation, poetry, music, and a trip down memory lane with some exclusive insights into the music and life with arguably the best ‘live’ band of all time.
Born in Bilston, Powell, who started drumming on a borrowed Olympic kit as a youngster, wsa a member of the band who dominated the UK charts during the early 1970s, outperforming chart rivals such as Wizzard, Sweet, T. Rex, Suzi Quatro, Mud, Smokie, Gary Glitter, Roxy Music and David Bowie – with more singles in the UK than any other group of the 1970s. In 1973 alone, ‘Merry Xmas Everybody’ sold over one million copies globally, obtaining gold disc status.
He later released his biography ‘Look Wot I Dun – My Life in Slade’ – Oh, and watch out for a world exclusive.. or two!
Join Don at The Slade Rooms, Wolverhampton on Friday 18 October 2019.
