Gunslinger Interview, British Steel Festival

 

Gunslinger first came around in late seventies exploding into the whole NWOBHM scene. They entered a competition ‘Sounds Music Paper’ for a record contract with Neat Records, unfortunately they had to pull out just as they got to the final two, as their drummer left and could not find replacement in time. In 1984 Gunslinger called it quits until 2007. Now here they are now at British Steel Festival  with the original bass player Alan Davey, guitarist Louis Davey and drummer Cat. So Planetmosh goes behind the scenes to catch up and discuss future plans. Enjoy.

About Del Preston

So there I am, in Sri Lanka, formerly Ceylon, at about 3 o'clock in the morning, looking for one thousand brown M&Ms to fill a brandy glass, or Ozzy wouldn't go on stage that night. So, Jeff Beck pops his head 'round the door, and mentions there's a little sweet shop on the edge of town. So - we go. And - it's closed. So there's me and Keith Moon and David Crosby, breaking into that little sweet shop, eh. Well, instead of a guard dog, they've got this bloody great big Bengal tiger. I managed to take out the tiger with a can of mace, but the shop owner and his son, that's a different story altogether. I had to beat them to death with their own shoes. Nasty business really. But sure enough, I got the M&Ms and Ozzy went on stage and did a great show.
