In the Blues and Rock scenes, Jim is well-respected, both as a songwriter and as a deft-fingered, multi-skilled guitarist. Jim is best-known as the lead guitarist of the legendary British classic rock band FM, with whom he’s served since 2008. However, in his storied career he’s also worked with many other major names, several of whom guest on the album, as on this very track.
“’Gravy Train’ is an obscure Status Quo song written by John ‘Rhino’ Edwards and the late, great Rick Parfitt,” Jim explains, “Rhino is a really good friend of mine and I regularly play guitar for him in his band Rhino’s Revenge. ‘Gravy Train’ is one of my favourite songs that we play together. I thought a cover of it would fit great on my album. Rhino agreed to me covering the song, as long as he played bass. Who could refuse that offer?”
In other news, Jim Kirkpatrick has confirmed three solo acoustic shows.
