Scottish rock band Nazareth will appear in the first of a series of documentary and live DVD releases presented by The Rock Screen in association with Metropolis Studios and released by Entertainment One.
The band is inviting fans and media the chance to attend an exclusive intimate VIP gig on 14th November that will also be filmed as part of the forthcoming documentary and live DVD release.
Nazareth started in the late 60’s/early 70’s and were pioneers of a distinctive and definitive rock ‘n ‘ roll sound which had a massive influence on many of the great rock bands that followed – most notably Axl Rose and Guns n Roses, who recorded a cover of Hair of the Dog on The Spaghetti Incident album.
Over the years the band has gone through a number of line-up changes, but Bassist Pete Agnew has remained constant throughout and will be performing at the intimate Metropolis Studios gig alongside his son Lee Agnew (Drums) and Jimmy Murrison (Guitars).
Pete said, “The band are really up for this DVD. We’re looking forward to recording in such an intimate setting where we can see every person in the audience up close -and we have been laying bets as to who those people will be. Knowing our very loyal fans, I’m guessing we’ll know most of them by name so it will be not so much a gig, but more a private party”
Vocals are by newcomer Linton Osborne, an accomplished rock singer who also comes from Dunfermline and has been a friend of the band’s for many years. His joining the band came about when original singer Dan McCafferty had to retire in 2013 due to ill health.
