Say hello to Eric* and Julie Slick, the brother and sister team who’ll be backing Adrian Belew on drums and bass respectively.
You can get all the background and details on their mom’s website, writer Robin Slick, who’s posted some pics and some tales on her blog.
The last couple of days Robin and I have exchanged emails. Naturally she’s been fretting as any proud mom would be, as the pair went to Nashville to see if they’d be up to the gig.
Happily she needn’t have worried. Robin held off making the news public until agreement from Belew Camp which came today.
So it’s a big Crim-congrats to the pair who’ll be touring with Adrian in the near future.
* Thanks to folks for pointing out earlier that I had written Earl rather than Eric Slick. That's me on automatic pilot! Bad Sid....
