Nugene Music presents THE RED DEVILS live at Borderline
The last time the Red Devils played The Borderline in London (in 1993), Mick Jagger came to see the band. This July 30th The Red Devils return to The Borderline.
Mick Jagger recorded with the Red Devils in 1992 long before the Rolling Stones returned to their blues roots on record. This was the same year The Red Devils released “King King” their seminal live recording that has proved so influential. Jagger and the Devils laid down nearly two-dozen rowdy, raw and real blues classics. The sessions went unreleased officially, but circulated widely as a popular bootleg. One cut “Checkin’ Up On My Baby” finally was released on Jagger’s 2006 “Very Best” compilation.
The Red Devils disbanded in 1994 and front man Lester Butler died four years later aged 38, but a fervent fan base keeps The Red Devils’ flame alive. Taking the role of the late Lester Butler is Delta Groove recording artist Big Pete, a monster harp player, front man and singer who attributes his entire musical existence to seeing The Red Devils in 1993.
The Red Devils are presently on tour supporting ZZ Top.
