Phil still works a lot specially in Italy. Someone called Renato Zero comes to mind. His wife is also an Italian singer he plays with...

I repeat that being a pro muso is not an easy life.
You take the jobs where it come from even if it is a cover band.

After all if the band is really good I can enjoy some.
The main mistake for MK\DS cover band is that they forget to have a good singer because Mark's own personality is very very strong so very difficult to impersonate.

Phil Palmer is not my preferred guitarist in term of personal taste but he remains a top sideman - the kind of guy you can ask in a hurry to come in and doing the job properly.

I admire Phil's work, don't get me wrong, I just think it's not the best way of dealing with things especially given your reason of the difficulty of "replacing" MK. You can start a YouTube channel then, make an online school or something, I understand that being a musician is a super difficult thing to do and that's why I'd never want to be a professional musician in the first place. It's really, really hard. So I hope Phil is going to persevere with his work beside playing songs of the band he was a part of 30 years ago.

Great review! Thank you.

Chad is an amazing drummer and it’s a pity that he left the tour but on the other side, we’ve had a great drummer on Speedway at Nazareth, the best ever.

Great drummer. (I was there too).

Lol imagine this coming from MK, he'd double his fortune. It would be nice to know what exactly Phil can teach though.
I have no doubt that Phil is a great guitar player. Especially intermediate to advanced players I think could pick up a lot of good stuff from him. And as a guy who's been working up close with Mark and learned a lot of the arrangements, there should be tons of stuff for fans of Mark's playing.

I have no doubt too, the guy has been playing on big stages for ages, been around Clapton, George Michael, Gilmour, Elton, etc., certainly he has many things to teach. It's pity he's more associated with his cover bands stuff now, if not that I'd be the first guy to buy his masterclass, but now I'm thinking about not doing it. If someone's going to pull the plug on that, please share the experience.
