GUITAR innovator Michael Chapman Michael Chapman can refer to one of the following:
Among his classic albums on EMI's Harvest label was the 1970 recording, Fully Qualified Survivor, featuring guitarist Mick Ronson Mick Ronson (May 26, 1946 – April 29, 1993) born in Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire was an English guitarist, composer, multi-instrumentalist, arranger and producer. He is most well known for his work with David Bowie from 1970 to 1973, Bowie's glam rock period, including and Steeleye Span bass-player Rick Kemp. It was acclaimed by John Peel as best album of that year and included Chapman's most famous song Postcards of Scarborough.
Chapman refused to mellow with age and the 90s saw some powerful experimental work with sequencers and sampling on Geordies Down The Road, an anthem to unemployment in the North East.
The decade also saw such highly-acclaimed albums as Navigation, Dreaming Out Loud and Twisted Road and his recent travels in the USA have resulted in his Americana instrumental CDs, demonstrating that Chapman's guitar playing is as breathtaking as ever.
Tomorrow's show at the British Legion, Heath Lane, starts at 8.15pm.
