Happy New Year everyone! My MGT solo album is now mixed and mastered and with the record label, featuring guest vocals from a host of stars including Ville Valo of H.I.M, Wayne Hussey of The Mission, Miles Hunt and Erica of The Wonder Stuff, Ricky Warwick of Black Star Riders/Thin Lizzy, Saffron from Republica, Ashton Nyte of The Awakening, Raymond Watts of PIG/Primitive Race to name a few.. more news on that to come very soon.. meanwhile Check out the REGEN interview below..

In the meantime I’ll be touring the UK later this month with my good friend Ricky Warwick of Black Star Riders, Thin Lizzy and The Almighty.. Recently guested on his fantastic solo album, which now gets a release through Nuclear Blast on 24th Feb.. check out the latest single and video with MGT below..

The first of these two albums is entitled “When Patsy Cline Was Crazy (And Guy Mitchell Sang The Blues)”, which features ‘Toffee Town’ with MGT on lead guitar.. The release also boasts an array of acclaimed musicians, with guests such as Joe Elliott (DEF LEPPARD), Damon Johnson (THIN LIZZY, BLACK STAR RIDERS), Andy Cairns (THERAPY?), Billy Morrison (BILLY IDOL), Nathan Connolly (SNOW PATROL), Ginger Wildheart, Jake Burns (STIFF LITTLE FINGERS) and Richard Fortus (GUNS N’ ROSES). The second is an acoustic album called “Hearts on Trees”. Ricky & MGT have also recorded an acoustic version of the Iron Maiden classic ‘Wrathchild’, which is featured on Ricky’s ‘Stairwell Troubadour’ pledge album:  “Just when you think there couldn’t be any more surprises, he reworks Iron Maiden’s ‘Wrathchild’ into a stunning, flamenco-tinged ballad which will surely go down as one of the best cover versions ever laid down” (UBER ROCK magazine)

To support this release, Ricky has put together THE FIGHTING HEARTS, a band who pull no punches. On drums is Gary Sullivan from one of his post Almighty bands, (sic). On bass, his Black Star Riders’ band mate Robbie Crane, and Guitarist Mark Gemini Thwaite completing  the lineup. “Having previously played for such luminaries as THE MISSION and Peter Murphy, Mark added that special something that made the whole band gel.” (Ricky Warwick)
