Andy Mitchell Interview

L - Andy so you have just finished a tour with The Yard birds..

Andy - Yes I am fortunate to be the singer of the band

L – So please tell us about your great new album..

Andy - My new album is called Rooms because I wrote and recorded a lot of it when on tour with The Yardbirds in hotel rooms and in different studios and rooms..

L – I have had a listen to the album and really enjoyed it..strong melodies and chunky riffs..real classic song writing. So how did you get involved with The Yardbirds?

Andy - I was doing a gig at a venue in London called The Cobden club and Ben King the lead guitarist from The Yardbirds approached me and I was fortunate to land the job with The Yardbirds as the lead singer…Ben King is also playing guitar in my band now as well..

L – Well thanks for giving us some insight into the album and have a good one playing The TFTV show tonight at AAA..

At TF we give it 5/5 with favourite tracks being “Bring it on” and “(Like A) New years day” Imagine Classic influences like Led Zeppelin, McCartney, The Isley Brothers merged with a modern rock sound like Incubus, The Stereophonics and U2.
