Robin George

Over the years I've been fortunate enough to work with many of the best musicians in the industry and it occurred to me that one song I wrote some years ago, LovePower and Peace, had been recorded by many of those talents. 

I mentioned to a friend that I was planning to mix the song featuring all those artists, and he suggested making it a sharing single. It was so obviously a great idea that my enthusiasm was shared by everyone I approached. As I invited each artist to join LovePower, they would suggest others that they thought would love to be involved for example, Pete Thompson (Robin Trower Band) introduced Pete Haycock (Climax Blues Band)  Dom Brown (Duran Duran) has just got involved.

Now we have over 50 fabulously talented artists on what has grown into a 17 track CD so far! 

So this has become a labour of love not only for me, but for all of the great artists involved. Everyone has commented that they feel honoured to be working with such fabulous musicians for such deserving causes, LovePower & Peace Robin George.

The Robanna Studio sessions in Birmingham (UK) 14th March 2009

It could have been chaos.   Certainly it was the most frantic recording session ever, according to  Robanna's studio in Birmingham, UK. But frantic or not, the result was the realization of a  dream for rock star Robin George and Debra Derryn, MD of DCM Records.

 

By the end of the five-hour session – and with a little help from showbiz friends it’s obvious that this is set to be one of the most exciting feel-good projects since Feed the World
Robin and Debbie arrived at the studio for an 11am start, chauffeured by TV Presenter Charlie George, photographer Fran George and Thomas Scott. Vix (Fuzzbox/The Kix) had arrived early and was joined by the DCM camera  crew who were there to film the day’s events: Lance Nordli, Renee Ginger (who had traveled from Spain) and Roy Cooke, from London.

Daniel Boone, who had also traveled from London that morning, was first  into the studio. It was an emotional moment for those watching as he and Robin (who describes Daniel as his mentor) met again for the first time in 20 years.

 

   

“We’ve got something of a mutual admiration society,” Daniel said later. “I love his guitar playing and he loves my singing”.Robin rushed Daniel into the studio to sing a co-written song ‘Another Lonely Night” and what a powerful, emotional vocal performance it was.  Daniel was then ushered into the interview suite for what he described as “the best interview of my life” with Charlie George.



Kids from schools around Birmingham, and Essex who’d been expertly coached by Vix, arrived promptly, dressed in DCM signature black and red. 
 

They sang a chorus from one of Robin’s songs, ‘World’ with spine tingling emotion which won them a round of applause from seasoned stars.  

 The DCM crew was there to welcome journalists and photographers as well as Trudy Brown, representing No.1 Models' Agency.    
            

Geri Minelli, coordinator for Women in Music International had specially formed a choir from her members to support the ‘cause’.

They were next in the studio singing Robin’s beautiful anthem, “LovePower and Peace.”

They were joined by Freya Copeland (Angie, the copper from Emmerdale) who’d journeyed from London, Vix and music writer Debbie Bennett,

Robin was there to direct and captured some great vocal performances; stunning stuff!

Freya Copeland delighted everyone with her powerful and heartfelt rendition of “World.”

Everyone was delighted to welcome Jaki Graham, Tony Ormsby (her manager) and Natalie Graham. Jaki and Robin were delighted to meet again, having worked together in the past and Robin wasted no time in escorting Jaki into the studio. The stars and Press in the control room and studio agreed to a man that her performance was breathtaking! Jaki was stunned to be interviewed by Charlie George who she’d last known as a baby. 

 

                                       
Andy Pyke (Marshall Law) was next in line for the interview suite and discussed his excitement over the forthcoming release on DCM of the new Marshall Law album, No Justice (produced by Robin and with tiny Charlie on backing vocals). He also emphasized how enthusiastic the whole band was to be involved with a project of this magnitude.

  

“That was great! Like talking to a friend!” Andy commented before joining the male soloists in the Studio,   Andy had done a great job of escorting the male pub party back in time for their recording and he was joined by Spike (who’d traveled from Newcastle), Daniel Boone and Robin for an outrageously great vocal session.
 

 

Pete Way did not disappoint, providing onlookers with a satisfyingly splendid Wild Man of Rock moment … nuff said!

 

Finally the whole gang joined in to belt out the choruses together. ‘Love the groove!’ Marshall Law exclaimed, “This is what our next album should be like … enough Metal!” 

 

 Could be interesting!  

Rob of Robannas was an extremely genial host, putting everyone at ease with complimentary cuppas!

Messages of support and good wishes were received from all over the world ; from  Charlie Morgan, Pete Haycock, Pete Goalby, Ken Hensley, Nick Tart, Conny Bloom and Pete Thompson and they were certainly there in spirit but physically in America, Japan, Germany, Spain, Sweden or Australia.

Certainly the day, which ended on time to the minute despite the frantic pace of events, will remain with all of us who were there for a very long time to come.

The CD promises to be a showcase of all that is great and good in the music industry; talented, creative artists producing something real and original – and from the heart.

Below is an extract from the article by John Ogden (Express and Star) to give you an idea of what's going on.
 


The LovePower project began with a conversation in the Andalucian mountain village in which Robin George now has his home, Robin explained, Over the years many artists have recorded my song, LovePower and Peace and I was telling a friend that one day I'd like to do a mix featuring them all.

It started as a single, then grew to an EP then as more and more artists joined the cause, they started contacting fellow musicians and now its a  album packed with fantastic songs.

With 21st Century technology, geographical distance is no barrier.

Its amazing, says Robin.. A couple of weeks ago I recorded  drummers Charlie Morgan in Nashville, whos played with Elton John and Kate Bush, Chris Slade of AC/DC and Damage Control in Los Angeles,  Pete Thompson in Dallas, who's with Robin Trower...

There were also tracks winging their way in from  Pete Haycock in Germany, Conny Bloom of Hanoi Rocks in Sweden plus Ken Hensley from Uriah Heep and Eddie Clarke of Motor Head sent tracks from Spain and London all in the same week.

He adds, Pete Thompson put me in touch with Pete Haycock from The Climax Blues Band whose superb slide guitar is a major feature of the album. He put me in contact with J Dom Brown from Duran and Morgan Fisher from Mott the Hoople who have both contributed fantastically to the album .
 

Robin also flew to England at the weekend to produce a massive vocal recording session featuring Pete Way of UFO, Daniel Boone, Jaki Graham, Marshall Law, Spike and the Quireboys, Vix from Fuzzbox and Emmerdales Freya Copeland.

There a packed album  of  songs featuring 50 artists and counting! All are written or co- written by Robin, except for Daffodils and a beautiful Phil Lynott track.
 

The power behind the whole project is the desire of all the artists to put something back.


The number of people wanting to take part is a huge tribute to Robin. Featuring on the album are, amongst so many others, genius bassist
Pino Palladino, Ruby Turner, John Wetton of Asia, the late great David Byron, Pete Goalby of Uriah Heep, the late Kex Gorin of Magnum, Jacqui Williams of M People and Sean Harris of Diamond Head.


Robin has also worked with Thin Lizzy,
Robert Plant, David Byron, Roy Wood Carl Palmer and Don Airey and Plant and Ted Nugent have recorded his songs.

A few of the artists have suggested forming the ultimate super group. I'd be interested in that. Robin smiled. Its years since I've been on a major tour and I think its time to get back out there, especially for something as fabulous as this.
