New Beginnings

As we come out of lock down, Jurassic Rock is moving in a new, exciting direction. With the introduction of Andy Ewings on bass and Paul Lamy on drums, we will be moving away from pop and lighter rock ‘n’ roll towards a much heavier sound and type of music. With a completely revised play list, we will be playing at various venues and festivals in the coming months.

Bob Settle has been Jurassic Rock’s drummer since 2000. With the long layoff due to COVID-19 and the death of Ian McNorton, Bob has decided that his time with the band has run it’s course and will not be returning when things get back to normal in 2021. He has many other musical interests including playing with big bands of many kinds. We wish Bob every success and happiness in his new ventures.

2020 – A Strange Year For All

Author jurassictone    Category News     Tags

As with everything else in the country, Jurassic Rock “closed down” for 2020. Unable to gig, we, like all other bands, lost whatever momentum we had and will have to work hard to get gigs once the lockdown is lifted.

It is also the year in which we have to report with very heavy hearts that Ian McNorton, our bass player, died. His year had been even more harrowing than most as he had to nurse his wife through months of dementia, during which time she was confined to her bed and entirely reliant on Ian. During her illness, Ian had a mild stroke, which made his task even more difficult, but he managed with help from his sister-in-law and social services. Several months after her death, Ian had another stroke and was admitted to hospital where he contracted pneumonia and died. We are all very sorry to have lost you Ian, and will miss you as a friend and fellow musician.
