EX-KING CRIMSON VIOLINIST DAVID CROSS ANNOUNCES THE RELEASE OF NEW STUDIO ALBUM ‘ICE BLUE, SILVER SKY’ OUT NOW! SPECIAL EVENT ON INTERVIEWING THE LEGENDS!

 

 



EX-KING CRIMSON VIOLINIST 

D A V I D  C R O S S 

ANNOUNCES THE RELEASE 

OF NEW STUDIO ALBUM 

‘ICE BLUE, SILVER SKY’ 

OUT NOW! 

SPECIAL EVENT 

ON INTERVIEWING THE LEGENDS!


Initially inspired by Leadbelly, the Beatles, Bartok, Coltrane and his church organist father, David became an irrepressible improvisor and experimenter. 

His subsequent immersion in rock music introduced him to a new, vast pool of expressive possibilities.  Currently, he plays a half fretted Violectra electric violin with 5 strings and an octave drop pedal, giving him a pitch range from the bottom of the cello to the top of the violin. 
David Cross was a member of King Crimson during the 1970s and continues to have a loyal fan base. 
He’s best known for playing violin on the albums “Larks’ Tongues in Aspic” and “Starless and Bible Black”. 
The musicians featured on his new album “Ice Blue, Silver Sky” include Jinian Wilde, Mick Paul, Steve Roberts and a special guest appearance on two tracks by David Jackson of Van Der Graaf Generator. This new studio album features new tracks along with new recordings of the two classic King Crimson tracks “Exiles” and “Starless”. The album title refers to a lyric in Starless and King Crimson lyricist Richard Palmer-James contributes to the lyrics on this album.

BOOK TRAILER

 

BOOK REVIEW

-By Literary Titan (5) STARS

The Rock Star Chronicles by Ray Shasho, is a splendid book written by a music enthusiast who has poured their heart and soul into it. It’s a story of a boy who loved rock music, and his obsessive passion of it earned himself the name Rock Raymond. He went to school but instead was schooled in all matters of music while his peers were buried chin-deep in coursework. He then became a radio DJ and has now compiled a book on all interviews he held with Rock gods who raided the airwaves back in the 70s and 80s. It’s a compilation of interviews with outstanding vocalists, legendary guitarists and crazy drummers in the rock music scene. Each interview gives a reader an in-depth view into their personal lives and the philosophies that guide their lives which all serve to humanize these great icons. For readers who are old enough to call themselves baby boomers this book will bring old memories back to life. Millennials, on the other hand, may think of this book as a literal work of the Carpool Karaoke show. 

The Rock Star Chronicles is a book I didn’t know I was waiting for. To come across a book that will talk me into trying something new. One brave enough to incite me to venture into new frontiers. This book made me a believer- I am now a bona fide Rock and Roll music fan. 

Ray Shasho masterfully gets the interviewees talking. He smartly coaxes answers from them with crafty questions designed to get a story rolling out of them. The artists talk about diverse issues ranging from music, politics, and their social engagements. Having been on the music seen all his life, Ray Shasho knows the buttons to press, how to get them comfortable about talking about their lives. 

The book’s cover is befitting of its subject matter with the leather look offering a royal background to the golden letter print. It speaks to how high a level rock music holds in the pecking order- arguably, modern music as we know it has originated from blues and rock music.  The second noteworthy thing is the use of high-definition pictures to reference the musician being interviewed in every sub-chapter. This ensures that the book is for both original rock and roll lovers and aspiring new ones. Together is makes for a refreshing and consistently enjoyable read.

I recommend this book to rock music enthusiasts, aspiring musicians wondering what it takes and all readers curious to learn new things by going back in time.

‘THE AUTHOR

 AND THE DREAMER’

 SPECIAL EVENT WITH 

SINGER …SONGWRITER …COMPOSER…

 MULTI-INSTRUMENTALIST 

AND FOUNDING MEMBER

 PAT MOLESWORTH 

ON INTERVIEWING THE LEGENDS


 Zeelley Moon is the brainchild of singer-songwriter and keyboardist Patrick Molesworth, who is assisted by the Zeelley Moon Band. A British band formed in Buckinghamshire in 2006, headed by Pat Molesworth.

The band has just released the band's second album entitled 'The Author And The Dreamer' six years after his debut and it has been well worth the wait.

Seven tracks penned, arranged, and sung by Pat on which he plays piano, Hammond organ, and other keyboards. A stunning, genre defying collection of progressive rock with a twist. The lyrics, which the album's title suggests are of an autobiographical nature, pack a universal emotional relevance.

Pat is joined on guitar and bass by Jim Kelleher (plus Steve Picking on two tracks), Aled Peter Lloyd on drums, Sarah Mau on cello and violin, Katherine Sparks on flute, and Meg Prickett on backing vocals.
