So delighted to kick off our acoustic sessions with Hassan. He tipped up at the studio with a few legends as well.
HBR played six songs for us including two fantastic cover versions. One from the Stone Temple Pilots, Interstate Love Song & one from Zeppelin, Black Dog. Hassan took care of the vocals, while Hamish Stewart played bass, Danny Cummings kept the groove, Jamie Moses played acoustic and a little electric guitars and finally Melvin Duffy played steel & slide.
