This is intended to be a homage to very many musicians I've loved since I started listening to music. My intention is to tell what I know about them, hoping that those people who like them too, will help me fill numerous gaps, which I may have in their careers and discographies. Sorry, but there are no MP3 audio files here at all, just info (and love for the musicians).

BIOGRAPHY:

Amazing and underrated guitarist, I always wondered why he didn´t become a more famous player, a star. It seems he´s only loved by his mate musicians, but people out there should recognize his immense talent.

Born in 1954, he´s brother to lovely singer Diana Johnstone (who was the first wife of guitarist and Jo´s mate, Davey Johnstone).


COLIN SCOT BAND


Around 1971 and 1972, the late Colin Scot played his gigs backed by a very young guitar player. This was the start of Jo Partridge´s career:

      1. Hi, greyman45, thanks for writing! You already appear in my list of bassists to cover in the future, and you're already mentioned in my pages about Jerry Stevenson and Jeff Seopardie. as well as appearing sharing album credits in my pages for Mike Paice, Stevie Lange and Les Davidson. Please, if you want, can you write me to molympus1@gmail.com? I'd like to ask you some questions about the lineups of your times with Alison Moyet and Midge Ure. Thanks again.
