Andy Fairweather Low at The Apex...
Andy Fairweather Low came to prominence as the lead singer in Amen Corner, whose hits in the late '60s included 'Bend Me Shape Me' and ‘(If Paradise is) Half As Nice’.
When the group split in 1969, Andy formed the band Fairweather which was signed to RCA’s progressive label Neon, and for an underground progressive band it was somewhat surprising that they soon had a Top 10 single in 1970 with ‘Natural Sinner’.
Andy’s first solo success was with 'Reggae Tune' in 1974, followed by ‘Wide Eyed & Legless’. He then moved on to collaborations and contributions with other musicians, including The Who’s classic ‘Who Are You’ album.
Soon, Andy became an in-demand musician and ultimate guitarist to the stars, building an extraordinary reputation that has endured to this day. Andy is a regular member of Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings, and has a long musical relationship with Roger Waters, playing on three albums and live concerts including, 'The Wall – Live in Berlin', and the 'In the Flesh' and 'Dark Side of the Moon Live' world tours. Andy has also worked with Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Bob Dylan and many more.
Andy’s gig on 31 October features the Low Riders extended line up, which includes the Hi Riders Special Soul Review with brass section and Hammond organ.
