Jon Lord With The Hoochie Coochie Men


Jon Lord Bob Daisley Tim Gaze Rob Grosser When Bob Daisley returned to live in Sydney, Australia in 1997, he soon re-established a connection with Tim Gaze. They'd been in Kahvas Jute together in 1970 and Bob had always rated Tim as a very good guitarist and kept in touch over the many years. Tim had a blues band called The Blues Doctors at the time and invited Bob to do some gigs with them. Bob picks up the story from here... I've always been a fan of the blues. Read more on Last.fm
Jon Lord Bob Daisley Tim Gaze Rob Grosser When Bob Daisley returned to live in Sydney, Australia in 1997, he soon re-established a connection with Tim Gaze. They'd been in Kahvas Jute together in 1970 and Bob had always rated Tim as a very good guitarist and kept in touch over the many years. Tim had a blues band called The Blues Doctors at the time and invited Bob to do some gigs with them. Bob picks up the story from here... I've always been a fan of the blues. I agree with the great Willie Dixon when he said "Blues is the roots, everything else is the shoots".

Soon after the first few gigs that we did, Tim asked me to join as a permanent member, which I agreed to do. At that time the line-up was Tim on lead vocals and guitar, Rob Grosser on drums, Jim Conway on harmonica and yours truly on bass. I suggested that we start afresh with a new name and suggested The Hoochie Coochie Men, after the Willie Dixon penned song "I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Man", an old blues standard. In 2000 we recorded our first album "The Hoochie Coochie Men" with the above line-up. We did various gigs, clubs, restaurants etc.

but had a pretty non-eventful year during 2002, until in January, 2003 I got a phone call from Drew Thompson who working with Jon Lord on his tour in Australia. His first question was, "do you know Jon Lord"? I told him that I did and asked him why. He told me that Jon was in Sydney to play at the Opera House and that he wanted to do some other shows as well. As it happened, Jon was staying just down the road from where I live so I phoned Jon, arranged a dinner and chat and gave him a copy of The Hoochies' album, after which Jon and I discussed doing some shows with The Hoochies.

Now at that stage, we, THCM, hadn't played together for about a year so we got together and rehearsed in preparation for some shows with Jon as "The Hoochie Coochie Men featuring Jon Lord". We did one show in Melbourne where, at the sound-check, we did our first and only rehearsal with Jon - but that night all went well. The next day we flew up to Sydney to play at The Basement that night. We did a sound-check in the afternoon and then headed over to the ABC television studios to play a couple of songs live on the show "The Fat", then straight back to The Basement to be filmed doing our two one-hour sets there, the result being the live DVD and CD "Jon Lord with The Hoochie Coochie Men Live at The Basement".

Lord is recognised for his Hammond organ blues-rock sound and for his pioneering work in fusing rock and classical or baroque forms. He has most famously been a member of Deep Purple, as well as of Whitesnake, Paice, Ashton & Lord, The Artwoods and Flower Pot Men. He has worked with numerous other artists including Graham Bonnet (following Bonnet's departure from Rainbow). In 1968, Lord co-founded Deep Purple. He and drummer Ian Paice were the only constant band members during the band's existence from 1968 to 1976 and from when they reformed in 1984 until Lord's retirement in 2002.
