quot;, is bringing his music and creative blues/rock guitar playing to Rams Head On Stage for his first and only area appearance.Spanning a career of more than 40 years Bernies journey as an artist began with humble beginnings in the town of Buckingham, a small town in central UK. Born to working class parents a young Bernie soon found himself drawn to a new wave of music being created and inspired by The Beatles. With strong influences by some of the original Blues players it became clear early on that their inspiration would lead to a life long love affair with the guitar and traditional Blues.After gaining experience with local groups a big break came when an audition landed him a spot in the band UFO. The friendships made there were instrumental in landing a position in WILD TURKEY, a band that opened for many big names including Supertramp, Black Sabbath and Frank Zappa. With his reputation as an accomplished guitarist and vocalist growing, an introduction to Cozy Powell led to a stint with his band, COZY POWELLS HAMMER, whose hit Dancing With The Devil was topping the charts at the time. Session work further enhanced an already growing reputation and when HAMMER disbanded Bernie found himself joining BABE RUTH where they were signed to a contract with Capital/BMI.Cozy Powell heard that DEEP PURPLE members Ian Paice and Jon Lord were looking for new guitarist for their new band and he recommended Bernie who then joined PAICE ASHTON LORD. That led to an introduction to the former DEEP PURPLE frontman, David Coverdale. One jam session later and they had found a musical connection. That began a collaboration that would produce some of the most iconic rock classics of the 80s like, Fool For Your Lovin, Is This Love, and the worldwide number one hit, Here I Go Again. That song has sold more than 20 million copies earned Bernie an ASCAP Songwriter of the Year award and continues to be one of the most recognizable songs ever written.
