...Ace's lead singer for "How Long" also sang lead on the studio recording of Squeeze's "Tempted", late 80's classic, "Don't Shed A Tear" and on Michael and the Mechanics' "In the Living Years."
Here he is singing "Tempted" while touring with Eric Clapton.
And "Don't Shed A Tear"
One of my favorite songs of all time. The way the bass opens the song, then the drums. Classic.
I bought "Five A Side" when it first came out and it rests somewhere in a back corner
definitely familiar with Carrack - but didn't know he started in Ace.
...for one song before bolting. I don't think he even made it to the video.
for that hot minute.
carrack, dave edmunds and nick lowe used to all work in some orbit of each other - big fan of all those guys.
They don't write 'em like that anymore.
