Guitarist/Singer/Songwriter Chris Spedding has been a mainstay of the British session scene since the late 60s, playing with just about everyone from Nucleus, Jack Bruce, John Cale, Elton John, Mike Batt, to Paul McCartney & The Bay City Rollers (anonymously!).
In 1975 Spedding had a hit record called "Motorbikin'".
In the late 70s he moved to the States and worked with Robert Gordon, Jerry Harrison, Dick Rivers and Johnny Hallyday.
Since 2001, Spedding has been playing live with Roxy Music/Bryan Ferry, The War Of The World and R.Gordon / D.Rivers, Herbie Flowers, Charlotte Glasson among others.
In 2011, put out solo album "Pearls" and formed a legendary band called King Mob with Steve Parsons, Sixteen, Glen Matlock and Martin Chamnbers, but was short-lived unfortunately.
In 2015, he released his 13th original studio album "Joyland". On 29th June 2018, he had the 50th Anniversary Concert in London and this show came out.
Still he is playing with Bryan Ferry, Robert Gordon and The War Of The Worlds.

Help Robert Gordon Defeat Myeloid Leukemia

To all of Robert's friends and fans:

Robert has been in the hospital for the past six weeks. It was a terrible blow for him to have to cancel his tour this past July, but the situation now is much more dire. Robert has been battling an aggressive form of Acute Myeloid Leukemia. He is fighting for his life. Your love and continued support, of him and his music throughout the years, has been invaluable and so appreciated. He loves you all.

Robert’s incredible voice and his music has not only put Rockabilly back on the map, it has made memories for us all. A voice like his, coupled with the authenticity he brings to the music, is unforgettable, and doesn’t come around very often.

Let us give back to him. Whatever you can give will help him and be utilized toward his care and recovery.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Marylee Gordon, Melissa Gordon Uram, and Jackie Gordon Spalding
