He also recently joined Band of Friends, featuring two of Rory Gallagher’s principle band members, which celebrates the music of the guitar legend. I spoke to Jim via Skype on 21st October to talk about his recent solo album and plans for a new release as well as about Band of Friends and FM.

New Jersey based singer, producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Danny Danzi released his third album, entitled “Tribulations”, through Escape Music on 24th September. The album is his first in about 18 years, following on from two well received albums called “Somewhere Lost In Time” and “Danziland”. I linked up with Danny over Facebook and we arranged to record an interview on 28th September via Skype. We chatted for about 40 minutes about the new album, his recording studio, the previous albums and much more. That interview and four Danny Danzi tracks can be heard on the Friday NI Rocks Show from 1st October which is available now on our MixCloud page - https://www.mixcloud.com/NIRocks/interview-with-danny-danzi-on-the-friday-ni-rocks-show-1st-oct-2021/
