Chester Venue to Welcome ’70s Legends

The Live Rooms in Chester are set to extend a warm welcome to the renowned British rock group, Dr Feelgood.

The band formed in Canvey Island, Essex back in the 1970s and soon became respected for their uncompromising and raw style when performing live. While the group released many successful albums, it was a recording of their live musical performances entitled “Stupidity” that stole the UK charts’ number one spot.

Today, Dr Feelgood remains one of the world’s most popular acts playing rock, rhythm and blues fuelled by their multiple hit singles including “Back in the Night”, “Roxette”, Down at the Doctors”, Milk and Alcohol”, “Going Back Home”, “She Does it Right” and the band’s first ever gold record “See You Later Alligator”.

The group continues to tour extensively, with the present line-up featuring the rhythm section of Phil Mitchell on bass and Kevin Morris on the drums, both of whom have been playing with Dr Feelgood for 34 years. Steve Walwyn has supplied his guitar skills for 28 years and the band’s most recent addition – vocalist Robert Kane, who formerly played with The Animals – joined in 1999.

Dr Feelgood will play The Live Rooms, which can be found at 1 Station Road in Chester, on Saturday, November 19. The band will be joined on the night by two special guests, long-time friend Wild Willy Barret and the cult legend John Otway, who was immortalised in the documentary “Rock and Roll’s Greatest Failure.”

Tickets are available priced between £20 and £23.
