The next Gasto Promotions gig on October 26th when MARTIN TURNER [ex WISHBONE ASH] will be returning to the Forum Music Centre in Darlington.
Martin Turner's Wishbone Ash was formed in 2004 by Martin Turner, original bassist, lead vocalist and one of the songwriters of Wishbone Ash Mark 1 and Mark 2 Line up. Including various reunions, his tenures with the "original" Wishbone Ash band lasted 1969-1980, 1987-1991 and 1995-1996.
The band initially saw Turner joined by guitarists Keith Buck and Ray Hatfield, as well as drummer Rob Hewins. The band toured extensively throughout the UK and also in Europe with live performances featuring material from Wishbone Ash's heritage years, mixing live standards with lesser heard songs from the Wishbone Ash back catalogue, as documented on the New Live Dates Vols. 1 and 2 albums, released in 2006 and 2007 respectively.
Original Wishbone Ash member Ted Turner guested with the band onstage, as documented on the live albums. In March 2008 Keith Buck left the band and was replaced by Danny Willson. In December of the same year it was announced that drummer Rob Hewins had been replaced by Dave Wagstaffe.
"Creatively, I still have much to say," insists Martin Turner. "My song-writing has always been a backdrop to my real-life experiences and I am looking forward to getting creative as we prepare to take my band into its next chapter."
