HOLLYWEIRD SHOW SEASON 4

Hollyweird: Tony Moore and Stormin’ Norman Voss S04EP04

On this episode of Roger the Wild Child Show: Hollyweird , we are joined by original keyboardist of Iron Maiden and Cutting Crew, Tony Moore and Bassist for Bret Michaels Band, Stormin' Norman Voss!

TONY MOORE

Tony’s musical career began when he moved from his hometown of Bristol to London after answering an advert in a music magazine for an early lineup of the group, IRON MAIDEN, where he took on the role of keyboard/synth player. The band were unknown at that point and Tony worked and rehearsed with them for some time until, after playing their first live show together, he felt keyboards didn’t really work in the band and decided to leave.

After quitting Iron Maiden, Tony teamed up with Brian James (from The Damned) to form a group called Tanz Der Youth, recording one single called “I’m Sorry I’m Sorry” for Radar Records (home of Elvis Costello). Although a short-lived line-up, the band toured opening for The Stranglers, and Black Sabbath as well as being at the forefront of the New Wave movement in London where they were also championed by the legendary John Peel.

In the early 80’s, Tony formed a band as a vehicle for his singing and songwriting talents, called Radio Java. He signed to Carrerre Records and they made an album at the legendary Abbey Road Studios. From that album, they scored an airplay hit in Holland at Xmas 1983 with a song called FOOL.

In the Mid 80’s Tony joined the band CUTTING CREW (“I just died in your arms tonight”). With the band, he toured the world including playing massive US shows opening for Huey Lewis, Starship, and the Bangles as well as doing many headline gigs. They were the first Western band to play to an audience allowed to dance and stand up in Taiwan, and almost caused a riot amongst the 60,000 inside as well as the tens of thousands who couldn’t get in.

After leaving Cutting Crew during the making of the second album, he went on to write, play, record, produce and tour with Marie Claire D’ubaldo (Songwriter of Falling into you for Celine Dion) and once more performs around the world supporting her great success in countries like Italy, Russia, Japan, and Latin America.

Tony was the artistic architect responsible for creating and building the critically acclaimed Kashmir Klub in 1997. The Kashmir was a unique venue in central London that was at the heart of the new singer/songwriter acoustic revolution in the UK. He hosted debut and early performances from emerging acts like Damien Rice, KT Tunstall, Imogen Heap, Lucie Silvas, Ed Harcourt and Tom Baxter as well as secret sets from Sheryl Crow, Mick Fleetwood, and Dave Stewart to mention a few.

In 2003 (after the Kashmir Klub closed) Tony took over booking The Bedford in Balham. Under his musical stewardship, the venue grew into an award-winning location. In 2004 it won Best Pub in the country and twice won the best pub and club award. The Bedford has staged unique performances from Pete Townshend, The Finn Brothers, Kiki Dee, Willy Mason as well as been a launchpad for the careers of acts such as James Morrison, Paolo Nutini, Amy Macdonald, James Bay and Ed Sheeran.
