A Solo Album From A Drummer? Simon Kirke Is Doing It
It’s rare that drummers ever express interest in creating their own music, so ex-Free and Bad Company stick man Simon Kirke’s latest interest is, well … interesting. He’s doing just that with the upcoming “Filling The Void” project. He says on his website, “I’ve been writing songs for many, many years and I just wanted to get them out, like an exorcism,” Kirke says. “That was the primary reason for doing it and on the way [these songs] started to become something more than I thought they would.”
Word has it his music resembles a Jackson Browne style, unlike what you would expect.
