Special Guest John Roberts in the studio

Today was a special one for The Flash because Chris Rogers was joined by John Roberts, the drummer with The Blockheads . They have a brilliant new album out and a local gig on the cards for Februay at the spring arts Centre Havant.

Here is a Piece from the Blockheads website
John started playing the drums at the age of 12 after joining various bands he started playing pro gigs when he was just 14 which took him all over the world. In 1995 John studied at the Musicians Institute London which was run by Denise Roudette. There he received tuition from drummers such as Bernard Purdie and Thomas Lang.
In 1997 John landed his first proper gig being the house drummer on the Channel 5 ‘The Mag’ (in the UK).
In 2001 he was invited to play a few shows for the Blockheads and he has remained a regular player for them ever since.
John has been in demand as a session drummer and perfomer he has appeared with acts such as Wilko Johnson, Wreckless Eric, Suggs, Cathy Denis, Dr and The Medics, 911, North and South, John Otway and Bryn Howarth.
John also teaches drums in a couple of prestigious independent Schools including Bedales in Hampshire as well as privately tutoring many pro drummers.
