Damon Minchella - Richard Ashcroft, Ocean Colour Scene

Dec 26, 2016, 08:00 AM

Richard Ashcroft bassist Damon Minchella is our guest on Episode 26 of The StageLeft Podcast. Damon is widely regarded in the industry as the ‘go-to’ man, and talks through playing with The Who at Live 8, recording Paul McCartney’s bass part for ‘Come Together’ at Abbey Road with the great man looking on, details the conversation when asked by Noel Gallagher to join Oasis, leaving Ocean Colour Scene, playing with Paul Weller and passes on advice to young musicians (including how bassists can avoid tendonitis, a condition that stopped Damon’s career for 6 months).

There’s also some hilarious stories about Jimmy Page, Johnny Depp, and the time Diana Ross & Mariah Carey fought over OCS’ dressing room.

“It was me, Noel & Weller at the side of the stage watching The Prodigy….. and we realised the music we are making was now the mainstream……”
