New Album Fan Funded With 418% Of Pledge Target Reached!!
Three months ago guitar LEGEND Bernie Tormé began pledge music campaign to raise funds for a new solo album, his first for 15 years. The former Ozzy/Gillan axe-man has clearly struck a power chord with fans across the world, as the response to the campaign has been massive – blowing away all expectations like 1000 Marshall stacks set to 11.
On its close, the campaign has reached 418% of its target, with 10% of the money raised going to charity, and enabling Bernie Tormé to record the new album, set for release to accompany his upcoming UK Tour in October/November – possibly to be the great mans last, has he himself has indicated.
Expect some jaw-dropping hard rock antics and special surprises at the shows, as Bernie says THANK YOU to all those fans who have got involved, some with great words of support:
'Bernie, it's the best new album I've heard in the last few years. Killer guitar, great variety, music from the heart! Thanks so much!! :-)'
‘Had first listen to new album today... and the sound is MONSTER’
'Listening to Bernie Tormé's new album, Flowers & Dirt, and am f**kin’ loving it. Take a bow Mr Torme. Well done Sir.'
'Great album, fantastic guitar, takes me back to the early days of Gillan and the Mr Universe album. The only problem is that I have to wait until October 29 to see the tour at the Borderline'
Bernie’s career includes axing for Ozzy Osbourne, after stepping in & saving the day in the aftermath of another legends tragic death - the one and only Randy Rhoad's. He was an integral part of ex-Deep Purple frontman Ian Gillan’s massive world-touring band Gillan – with whom he wrote and played on four top ten albums and many hits, including the biggest selling singles, 'New Orleans' and 'Trouble'. He formed Desperado with Twisted Sister front man Dee Snider, which also featured ex-Iron Maiden drummer, the great late Clive Burr. He played alongside celebrated keyboard player Vincent Crane (ex-The Crazy World of Arthur Brown) as a member of psychedelic doom rockers Atomic Rooster. He has constantly performed with his own bands as well, including Electric Gypsies and Torme, bands that have rocked and released hit records all over the world.
