'Unfinished Business' - Andy Bown's first solo release for 30 years was produced by Mike Paxman [Status Quo, Asia, Uriah Heep, Judie Tzuke, Nick Kamen] and features contributions from the likes of Henri Spinetti [Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Katie Melua], Mick Rogers [Manfred Mann's Earth Band] and legendary bassist Trevor Bolder [David Bowie's Spiders from Mars, Uriah Heep] who sadly passed away in 2013.
Andy continued an intermittent solo recording career, whilst starting to work with Status Quo in 1976, first as a session musician, and then as a full time member, recording 'Rockin' All Over The World' with the band in 1978. He plays keyboards, guitar and harmonica with Status Quo to this day and is an integral part of the band, having co-penned many well-known Quo songs, most prominently the group's hits 'Whatever You Want', 'Again and Again' and the 1988 hit 'Burning Bridges' which, re-recorded, went on to reach No.1 in the charts as Manchester United Football Club's anthem.
He has a rich musical heritage, starting from his sixties bands The Preachers and The Herd, where he gave the talented teenager Peter Frampton his first job, on through an endless list of recording sessions with artists such as Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Halliday, Dusty Springfield, Cilla Black, Tim Hardin, Pink Floyd, Roger Waters, Lesley Duncan, Paul McCartney, Carly Simon and many, many more, whilst part-forming the ultimate 70's pop-rock band, Judas Jump (opening The Isle of Wight Festival 1970) and also appearing with and producing the cult folk band Storyteller. He played keyboards for Peter Frampton in the early 1970s, switching to bass for several tours after Rick Wills departed the band.
Andy was the surrogate Roger Waters during Pink Floyd's 'The Wall' tour of 1980 and 81 and he also played on Pink Floyd's 'The Final Cut' album and Roger Waters' subsequent release 'Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking'.
Andy's first solo album 'Gone To My Head' was released in 1972.
Ruby And Roy, Rubber Gloves, A Matter Of Time, When The Lights Went On, Keeping The Wolf Away, Right As Ninepence, I Got A Million, Tick My Box, Built To Last, A Good Innings, and (Bonus Track) Dancing In The Rain'Unfinished Business' is an album that shows off Andy's rich musical heritage along with his uniquely humorous and winning way with lyrics.
