Chester Kamen – Come The Revolution

We recently told you about some more new music from respected guitarist Chester Kamen – for those of you who have been enjoying these songs (and there have been quite a number of you giving us positive feedback on these) some good news as the next song is now available. Amongst many other artists, Chester has toured with Roger Waters, joining his band in 2002 and playing on subsequent tours, and with David Gilmour on his 2016 Rattle That Lock tour. He first played with David back in 1985 during the Live Aid show – David and Chester were both part of Bryan Ferry’s band for that show (as was Jon Carin). Chester has, like many musicians, kept himself busy whilst lockdowns and restrictions due to Covid-19 have called a halt to many things – in particular, live performance. In October, he shared his recently finished new piece of music called Take This, that runs for over 23 minutes. Chester told us that Take This is the first side of an album he is currently working on – following, or inspired by, the old Floyd blueprint of one long piece and several songs on the flip side. Since then we’ve seen the first few songs on the second side of the album: Brand New Day, Swimming, I’d Love To Turn You, and Lover’s Lane. His new song – Come The Revolution – has just arrived, with Chester on fine, and mildly political form, with the song once again written and played by Chester with Chuck Sabo again joining him on drums. Oh, and “exhausted groan at the end”! We’ll update you as he progresses with the rest of the album, as we know from feedback we’ve had that a good number of you are enjoying the songs revealed so far!
