Kee Marcello for UK tour

Former Europe, Easy Action and K2 guitarist Kee Marcello will tour the UK with his solo band in October.

It coincides with the announcement of a Gibson Les Paul signature edition guitar, and ties in with a run of clinic appearances at educational establishments and music shops.

And his fifth solo album, the follow-up to 2013’s Judas Kiss, is to be announced soon.

Last year Marcello argued he’d been right to refuse an invitation to return to Europe in 2003, saying: “Joey Tempest and me had different views on what musical direction the group would need to take in order to make it back to the top. Seems like I was right.”

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
