Aftershow News: 4th January 2018

Black Country Communion live at Hammersmith Apollo. After-party in the balcony bar of the venue. I was there from 10.15pm to 11.30pm but the event was due to finish at midnight. Around 100 guests are here with a nice buzzy atmosphere...it's a pay bar... All the band turned up,with Joe Bonamassa the first to arrive and Glenn Hughes the last to arrive. Joe was a lot more chattier and friendlier than i expected. Glenn was the one that posed for the most photos here. Also here was Gerry O'Connor from The Dubliners who had joined them on stage earlier. Had a chat with me old mucker Gary from top KISS tribute band Dressed to Kill. I saw them play many great shows...he has just left the hand after 27 years... Also here was Dante from Spinefarm Records and BCC pr Peter Noble. Also the usual suspects from Classic Rock and Metal Talk. All four band members were still here when i departed. When I left the venue there was still 20 fans outside waiting for autographs etc. A good party.
