Proper Boys
Rock / Blues

When vocalist PAUL ELLIOTT (ex Sting) and guitarist MIKE BERSIN (ex Freddie Mercury) were recruiting a new band, they knew that the choice of rhythm section was crucial – “We don’t want just any backline – we need the proper boys”! It wasn’t long before bassist JOHN GLADSTONE , who goes back with Paul to the days of Saratoga Blues Band and later the enigmatic Bad Bob, was on his way up the A1 from Yorkshire.
Fellow ex-Walker lad GREGG STRETTLE was tempted back from a premature musical retirement to complete the line-up on drums.
This is a partnership that was just “meant to be”.
Bass and drums first met when they were two years old. (There’s a photograph to prove it)!
