John Scott Cree's

Musical influences



Lonnie Donegan .........................

Ted Barber maintains this well-illustrated site dedicated to the man who started it all for so many of us.

Chuck Berry ...........

Of course, Elvis and Cliff Richard couldn't fail to thrill in the 50's, but Chuck's performance of 'Sweet little sixteen' in the film 'Jazz on a Summer's day', made me want to get on and do it myself. Glad to see him thrill in Crawley in 1995.

Little Richard .........................

A fine site with loads of links, dedicated to the man whose voice and superb piano-led band inspired thousands of singers like me.

Bob Dylan .........................

First made me look properly at lyrics and can still surprise, as I saw when he performed with a fine band at Hammersmith Apollo in 2003.

The Who .........................

The Beatles and Stones made me look again at guitar-led pop but The Who with their dynamic performance and finely crafted songs encapsulated all their attributes and more. Still stunning when I saw them again at Shepherd's Bush Empire in 1999. A fine site with loads of links.

The Kinks .........................

A fine band with superb Ray Davies songs, which took pop in several new directions as well as revisiting old ones. Many interesting links from this site too.

Ry Cooder .........................

Always stimulating and never less than interesting, seemingly tireless in his efforts to make quality recordings of pop music's heritage and rediscover himself and the music in the process.

Randy Newman .........................

Master songwriter and arranger, seemingly incapable of writing rubbish. I take a leaf from Brian Wilson's book and always play 'Sail away' if I'm trying to write.

The Kursaal Flyers ...........

I found their song writing and performances inspirational in the 70's and was delighted to see them again on the Naughty Rhythms Tour 2001.

Weald Choir ...............

One of her indoors' musical activities.

Cecilia McDowall ...........

Composer of classical music, children's and choral works, pianist, music teacher and my cousin. Includes details of her recordings, publications and concerts

Gatwick Caledonian Pipe Band ..........

mentors to son Joe.

Bachelor Jack .............

I've enjoyed some cracking evenings with the crowd at gigs featuring this London, acoustic-based, indie band (formerly called Treehorn) with son Dan on bass.

Digital Transition Promotions ........

Club promoters of Drum & Bass and other dance music in South-East England, the baby of another of son Paul and his mates.

The Motorpool ......

'David Bowie & A-ha doing shots with the Smashing Pumpkins'. Formerly called Coast, touring mates of Bachelor Jack, known to use son Dan on bass on occasion.

Buddy Rich ............................

Jock Cree's main man.

Jim Chapin ....................

Another of Jock Cree's main men.
