The Drums are Back
April 1, 1992
Cozy’s first solo album in quite a long time is 1992’s, “The Drums are Back”. It’s got a ton of people on it. Moreso than any other Powell solo album.
Guitars: Steve Makin, Brian May, Steve Lukater, Jamie Page, Ray Fenwick
Bass: Neil Murray, Billy Sheehan, Laurence Cottle, John Deacon, Steve Makin
Keyboards: Geoff Nicholls, Don Airey, John Sinclair, Jon Lord, Jeff Francis, Ray Fenwick
Vocals: Gerry Lane (just two tracks)
Track 2 is “Ride to Live”, and is the track that Brian May plays on. Brian must have loved this track, as he used it on his own solo album a couple of years later. Brian added lyrics to it, and sang it. On that album, the song is called “Resurrection”, but is the same music.
