After a year of action that saw them named Best Live Band at the European Blues Awards, the Rory Gallagher-fuelled Band Of Friends released their debut EP/DVD 'Too Much Is Not Enough' on February 28.
Bassist Gerry McAvoy (Rory Gallagher / Nine Below Zero / Champion Jack Dupree / Deep Joy), drummer Ted McKenna (Rory Gallagher / Sensational Alex Harvey Band / Greg Lake / Gary Moore) and guitarist-vocalist Marcel Scherpenzeel (Wolfpin) recorded their first batch of songs in 2013, with co-producer Paul Rose.
McAvoy appeared on every Gallagher studio album until the bandleader's passing in 1995. McKenna appeared on 'Photo-Finish', 'Top Priority' and 'Stage Struck' as a member of the group from 1977 until 1981.The Band Of Friends were formed after McAvoy played with Scherpenzeel in 2010 and realised the Dutch artist was "the closest thing to Rory you'll ever hear."
McAvoy continues: "Too Much Is Not Enough is a line in the sand for us. We're always going keep Rory's songs alive - but we're creative artists too and it's time to make that point.
