The Faces broke up in 1975 and Rod Stewart started his own band. One of the most influential guitarists in this line-up was Jim Cregan. Now, more than 40 years on, Jim, together with four outstanding musicians, performs that well-loved heritage music under the name 'Cregan & Co'.
The Band is made up of: Jim Cregan (guitar), Ben Mills (vocals/guitar), Harry James (drums), Pat Davey (bass) and Sam Tanner (keyboard).
Jim Cregan is best known for his work with Rod Stewart, Jim co-produced, co-wrote and was Rod's musical director for nearly 2 decades.
His songs have also been recorded by Joe Cocker, Willie Nelson, Kid Rock, Russel Watson amongst many others, and he has played on stage with guitarists Jeff Beck, Frank Zappa, Pete Townsend and Chuck Berry. Oh yes and Tina Turner, Elton John, Cat Stevens and Katie Melua to name a few!
He has received over 40 gold & platinum records to date, and his guitar solo on Cockney Rebel's "Come Up And See Me (Make Me Smile)" still sounds alright!
