Legendary Mountain Drummer "Corky Laing" set to rock Wolverhampton this Autumn

Headlining at Whitby & Clitheroe Blues, Rhythm & Rock Festivals; Corky will be playing the final show of his 70th Birthday Celebration Tour at The Robin 2 on Monday 15th October

The legendary Mountain drummer, songwriter, singer and raconteur from Montreal Canada, will be accompanied by his band, Chris Shutters, USA (guitar, vocals & flute), Mark Mikel, USA (bass, vocals & keyboards) and Phil Baker, UK (guitar, vocals and keyboards).

Mountain forged a style and sound that changed the face of rock music and the powerhouse drummer along with Leslie West, Felix Pappalardi and Steve Knight gave us “Mississippi Queen”, “Nantucket Sleighride”, “Theme from an Imaginary Western” and many more; all standing the test of time.  Although best known as a long-time member of the pioneering American hard rock band Mountain and for West, Bruce & Laing, during the past few years Corky has been living and thriving in the fast lane.  In between his one man show, playing with his band, lecturing at Universities around the world, Playing God: The Rock Opera and doing some producing, Corky has recently completed his memoirs, a book soon to be released tilted “Letters to Sarah”.

Having played on over a hundred recordings and been a major contributing artist on numerous singles, live albums and 23 or so studio albums, performed by the man who co-wrote many of the hits, this tour is all about playing the Mountain songs like they were originally written, like they were heard on the original recordings, with some West, Bruce & Laing and also Cream thrown in for good measure.  Jack Bruce was a long time collaborator with Corky, in West Bruce and Laing.

Corky Laing turned 70 this January and said;   “I never expected to make it here, but regardless, here I am and I plan on keeping going. I’m lucky to be alive and so very lucky to have all these wonderful people collaborating with me on various projects. It seems like there’s always new stuff to get excited aboutIf nothing else, I still get the kicks just rehearsing daily on my kit, and when I’m performing to audiences together with the brilliant musicians sharing the stage with me, well, that’s when it all  comes together.  It doesn’t matter whether I’m playing for dozens, hundreds or thousands of people, it’s always exhilarating.  Looking forward to playing in the US, Germany, Finland, France, and England, and seeing you at the gigs! “

Here’s what Mountain looked like in their heyday https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FplFq9EXiSM and you can check out a 5-minute video edit of Corky playing with this current band in Bowling Green, Ohio in December 2017 at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iwSmiWHMpkE&feature=youtu.be
