Thanks for the great feedback on these new pieces.
Also there are some rare tracks by Lazy Eye / Dave Lawton, Iconic Phare, Integer, the Dean O'Shea Group & more.
Rich has been busy working on ALBUM PROJECT 2 and thanks Roland U.K for supplying the new SPD-SX, which is proving to be a useful creative tool in the studio.
Richard is back from a very successful European Tour with Genesis band the Carpet Crawlers! The tour kicked off in Dartford, moving to Belgium, Germany, Switzerland & finishing at De Boerderij (Holland). Richard used his Yamaha Maple Custom kit with a Sonor snare & Tama Octobans & was pleased to see the next drummer to play at De Boerderij was Steve Gadd...!! The last show was filmed & there are already some other video clips from various shows online. More info soon at www.carpetcrawlers.com.
There is still a chance to catch the band at Liverpool Stanley Theatre on saturday 20th November.
Site updates - At last...some pics of Rich's Yamaha Maple Custom drums in the DRUMS/equipment section!
Latest site updates include new videos HERE. Richard will be uploading practise and rehearsal clips recorded using the Zoom Q3 video recorder.
The Carpet Crawlers have added a date at Liverpool University on 20th November.
Rich Kenyon's debut solo album "Something For The Week" appeared in August 2010 edition of Rhythm Magazine: "Richard has grand ambition here...Well done!" Full album info here.
Rich also recently joined the Carpet Crawlers band, playing the music of prog-rock great Genesis. Visit www.carpetcrawlers.com for details of their European Tour this Autumn. Rich commented "It's a great challenge to to play this music - especially considering I didn't know any of it!! Quite why I hadn't properly checked out Genesis over the years is difficult to explain, especially being such an avid fan of Yes, Marillion & Rush; but it has been beautiful to discover a wealth of great material and a real pleasure to examine Phil Collins' drumming style and also that of Chester Thomson."
April 2010 : Solo Album released!
