Martin Turner Boom Boom Photo Gallery 10/3/23

Martin Turner's ex Wishbone Ash 2023 "Live Dates" tour celebrates the 50th anniversary of Wishbone Ash's seminal 1973 double live album, and not only was Steven C Gilbert at Sutton's Boom Boom Club leg of the tour to capture some great photos in our Photo Gallery, but today's Video Of The Day of 'Warrior' and 'Throw Down The Sword', was filmed earlier on in February at Tielt's Patersdreef in Belgium. Martin formed the first of the Martin Turner’s Wishbone Ash touring bands back in 2005. Sadly, in 2013, Andy Powell took legal action to protect the Wishbone Ash registered trademark and prevent Turner from using the name. The court ruled in favour of Andy and Martin's application to appeal was refused. Since 2014 he has toured and recorded as "Martin Turner ex Wishbone Ash". The current line-up features Turner (bass/vocals), Danny Willson (guitar/vocals), Misha Nikolic (guitar) and newest recruit Sonny Flint (drums), with the two-part Sutton set list including Set 1: The King Will Come, Warrior, Throw Down the Sword, Rock 'n Roll Widow, Ballad of the Beacon, Baby What You Want Me to Do, Blind Eye and Phoenix, with Set 2 showcasing: Lady Whiskey, The Pilgrim, F·U·B·B, You See Red, Living Proof, Blowin' Free, Doctor and Jail Bait.
