Burnside Album Details
Gwyn Ashton, Prohibition
Featuring fourteen sizzling tracks, Ashton is joined by bass player Chris Glen and drummer Ted McKenna on this ferocious outing. Chris and Ted will no doubt be familiar to discerning rock punters from their days in The Sensational Alex Harvey Band, Ian Gillan Band and the Michael Schenker Group. Together, the three make an absolutely formidable combo. There is even a cameo by Don Airey, former Rainbow, Whitesnake, Gary Moore, Black Sabbath and now Deep Purple keys man. Prohibition shuffles a smart selection of tough rocking styles, from the blues-soaked Ball & Chain, through to more lyrical forays such as Castaway, and the demoniac bastard Bo Diddley shuffle of the title track. It also includes Gwyn's soulful tribute to Stevie Ray Vaughan, Rest In Paradise. Ashton’s acclaimed fretboard fireworks are sprayed liberally throughout, with the Glen/McKenna rhythmic axis keeping things devastatingly simple. Gwyn Ashton has toured the UK, Europe, the USA and his native Australia extensively in his rewarding career, making friends and fans from across the globe.
