The word 'legend' is chucked about like nobody's business in the world of pop and rock, but this Sunday, January 4, at the humble settings of The Crown pub in Bridport, we are in the presence of a proper one. Laydeezungennelmen... Mr Chris Spedding.In a career spanning some five decades, Spedding's track record is pretty impressive as the go-to session guitarist, having worked with among many others, Harry Nilsson, Elton John, Bryan Ferry and Roxy Music, Robert Gordon, Joan Armatrading, Nick Mason, Paul McCartney, Roger Daltrey and Tom Waits.All of this pales in comparison, obviously, with a stint in Mike Batt's Wombles during the mid-Seventies.Spedding also featured on Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds extravaganza back in 1976 and has recently toured The New Generation version of this epic spectacle.He'll be joined at The Crown by Malcolm Bruce, son of the recently departed Jack, on bass and drum monster Chris Page, The Corby Crusher himself, on tub-thumping duties in a gig which is a bit of a warm-up for the band's date at the 100 Club in London's Oxford Street the following Saturday, January 10.
