Obviously with my commitments to recording and touring with The Cult it’s not often that I get chance to play other gigs. This week was the exception as I was asked to appear as a special secret guest alongside Billy Idol at a Rock Against MS charity event at Whiskey a Go Go in LA. We played a couple of Billy’s songs, White Wedding ad Rebel Yell, and it was great to be part of this and to support such a worthy cause.
Playing the show with Billy reminded me of the gig last year when I was lucky enough to be invited to play at the Marshall 50 Years of Loud gig in London with Cory Taylor of Slipknot. So it seemed a good idea to tell my story of the event and I got in touch with my pal Chris George who was musical director on the night and he’s kindly provided us with the master mix from my part of the show to share with you on billyduffy.com.

Whilst on the subject of jamming with friends, if you haven’t checked it out already on here there’s also the tale of my 2,000 mile motorcycle road trip up the West Coast with my three good friends; Steve Jones, Billy Morrison and Frankie Perez. We stopped of at various Ducati dealerships and played intimate acoustic gigs as part of the Ducati All Stars.
