#TREVORHORN : Rewind Festival SCOTLAND: SCONE PALACE PERTH - TOMORROW 2.30pm - SEE YOU THERE?

Re below, as posted last week. I am indeed going tomorrow, and along with so much of the brilliant music due to feature - I'm looking forward to Trevor's version of Minds classic "WATERFRONT."
Should he asked me to join in? Well, I will let you guess what my response would be.
In any case Trevor goes on at around 2:30 pm. Maybe see you there?
"Speaking to Trevor recently and he informed me that he will be performing in Scotland at THE REWIND FESTIVAL - Scone Palace, July 22nd....and of course I am not going to miss that!
It will be a great chance for me to once again hook up with "truly legendary Trevor Horn." A great chance to hear again some seminal pop
music such as this -

TREVOR HORN (photo), is of course yet another who produced Simple Minds. It is he (and Stephen Lipson) who deserve the credit for our Street Fighting Years album which featured Belfast Child, Mandela Day, This Is Your Land etc. They both put so much thought and time into Simple Minds - in a period where in someways we were sadly in the process of coming apart at the seams.

Trevor also produced so many of my fave 80's defining records. Including Grace Jones, Malcolm McLaren, Yes, ABC, and Frankie Goes to Hollywood. Particularly Frankie.....what a sound that debut album had!

In any case Trevor, who also plays bass and has his own touring band, is currently adding our very own "Waterfront" to his live set which also features much of the songs that he produced. Known more as "a studio beast" a recent article in Glasgow's Herald newspaper detailed how Trevor, whose music somewhat defined the 1980s, says that now playing live is therapeutic after the death of his wife Jill - who incidentally was also a great supporter of Simple Minds, someone who we also admired very much.

You can read more about Trevor Horn here:
"WHEN the definitive encyclopaedia of pop history is written, one of the most fascinating entries will be found under H. That chunky chapter will be concerned with the man who contributed the first vocal performance to MTV, the media behemoth that changed the face of the pop music industry, and then went on to spend much of the next four decades hunkered down in the bunker of a recording studio control booth."
