Something I was thinking of recently. How many bands can you think of where official members are from overseas and come over for recording and touring? Jerry Donahue immediately springs to mind with Fairport and all the affiliated artists he worked/toured with. Bruce Guthro from Runrig made the jump back and forth from Nova Scotia to Scotland hundreds of times. Piper Mike Katz was with the Battlefield Band and now plays for the Tannahill Weavers, both Scottish bands obviously though he is American. Any others?

I thought Chrissie essentially moved to Britain though, rather than shuffling back and forth?

Yes, she hails from Akron Ohio (I think) but moved to the UK in the 70s, well before she became a musician.

Brighton's own Steve Ferrone was a Heartbreaker for over 20 years, replacing original Heartbreaker Stan Lynch (raised in Gainesville, Florida, from which most of the Heartbreakers hailed).

Graham Nash has practically lost his accent, he's been here so long.

Just found out the wasp I killed yesterday was a wasp cop who was too old for this s**t and only one week away from retirement. Feel awful.

Correct - he performs regular gigs at jazz clubs in the greater Boston area. His gigs are listed at www.davemattacks.com. He plays Tuesday nights at a restaurant called "Jalapeno's" with a jazz quartet called KBMG. For their acoustic gigs, he leaves the drums at home and tickles the ivories.

Dan ar Braz and Trevor Lucas with FC. I think Doane Perry with Till is/was USA-based. Tetsu with Free, Damo Suzuki and Malcolm Mooney with Can.

Tetsu also graced, or disgraced, The Faces. Gerry McAvoy, bassist with Rory Gallagher's band who supported the Faces on a US tour, wan't impressed: "One night he was so pissed they literally strapped him to his amp on stage to keep him upright. .....I don't think I ever saw him play sober"

Considering the reprobates in the band he was playing in, that seems more than a little harsh!
