Stephen Cummings is looking forward to joining Bryan Ferry and his mates at A Day On The Green

Stephen Cummings is really looking forward to touring with Bryan Ferry for A Day On The Green. He first saw Bryan with Roxy Music at Festival Hall, Melbourne on the first Roxy Australian tour in 1975. “I think the ticket cost $5,” Stephen tells noise11.com. “I used to go out a lot then, I guess because it was so cheap”.

The addition to A Day On The Green came about when Ron Pono had to withdraw Died Pretty for health reasons. “Ron is a much appreciated figure, he has a great sense of humour and a great songwriter,” Stephen says. “Its weird for me, but I’ll be with Models and I’m Talking as well so I’ll know some people there. I’m looking forward to that”.

Stephen has a busy 2019. He is about to release his 20th solo album ‘Prisoner of Love’ as well as a 4CD anthology ‘A Life Is A Life’ then he is off touring again. “I’ve got my own tour with Bill McDonald, Clare Moore, Sam Lemann and probably Billy Miller as well at some of the gigs. I’ll do a mixture of everything I’ve ever done, a bit of The Sports, a bit of everything I’ve done”.

This week he was in the audience to see his friend Robert Goodge put together his old band I’m Talking for the first time in 30 years. “I thought they were really good. I was surprised. The girls were so hard working. They sang really good and they sang great together. Everyone in the group was really good. They were practiced and really together,” Stephen said.

“Robert Goodge played guitar on my very first album. He is probably my best musician friend. I was excited for him because he put the package together himself. He has been amazing at getting organised and getting them organised and he has done everything for all the write reasons. The young drummer was good, so was the sax player. All the originals were good and the two new young ones had a lot of energy”.
