Counting down with just ten days to go till the star studded benefit gig at the O2 Academy Islington on October 29th for former Big Roll Band bassist Paul McCallum, who is sadly in hospice care since his medical condition has worsened.
The popular bass player, diagnosed with an advanced form of Multiple System Atrophy some years ago, was not only the brains behind PLASA member company, Wembley Loudspeaker, but also bass player with Zoot Money’s Big Roll Band and a host of other major names, including Helen Shapiro and Billy Fury. Paul is affectionately known as ‘The Womble’ from his days as Uncle Bulgaria in Mike Batt’s original Wombles.
In addition to playing their own set Zoot and the boys will provide the rhythm section for guest musicians who will appear on the night.
All proceeds from the event will go towards funding Paul’s medical expenses.
