PRS 30th Anniversary

PRS 30th Anniversary

To mark the 30th Anniversary in 2015 of Paul Reed Smith’s amazing guitars, I dropped into the PRS Europe HQ to record a little tribute (using the 30th Anniversary Custom 24, of course).

It was mid-tour, so I had the band with me. It ended up with me, Hammy and Gareth playing around with a groove and having a load of fun! You’ll notice Gareth is playing a PRS bass, and naturally I am playing my favourite PRS amps.

You can also download an mp3 of the track (full length – the video is a shortened version).

Simply click here.

I am delighted to say that Crossing The Line has been included in the Best of 2012 selections published by two leading magazines: Classic Rock and “The Blues”. A track from the album is on each magazine’s “Best of” cover mount CDs.
Thank you also to the many other magazines and web sites that have said such great things about the album.
