Only just spotted these replies (note to self "read the boards more carefully").

Thanks to Nick, Rob and Rahul, great job and some very interesting answers.

Cheers, but I had very little to do with it. I was just the sad git who copied and pasted the answers into a new section! emoticon

It's entirely Rob's handiwork!

Well I think you all should take a pat on the back for asking great questions.

Rahul asked
           Hi Nick, I've got almost everything you've done since your Deep Purple days, but one thing that still eludes me, is a vinyl single of Nick Simper's Dynamite.
           What was the story behind this single? Do you know how many were pressed in the UK? I've been looking for a while now, but to no avail! Other than Pete Parks, what's the line-up of that band? Would really appreciate any info!
Best regards, Rahul
           PS. Do you keep in touch with any of your former bands mates like Pete Parks or Ashley Holt? Any chance of a Warhorse reunion? That would be something truly incredible! Thanks for your time!


Nick replied
           Yes, the Dynamite single is as rare as rocking horse dung. I've no idea how many were pressed as the whole structure collapsed before it even got going.
I was approached by an independant management/record company in 1975 to form a new band, which I did, comprising of Pete Parks on guitar, Johnny Caroll (ex Pirates) on keyboards, Mick Richardson (ex Black August) on drums, with the great James Royal on vocals. The guys in charge were particularly impressed with Warhorse's "St Louis" track, so we were asked to do it again, with quite good results, I thought. We were due to tour the [sign in to see URL] supporting The Eagles, which would have been great, but fate decided that it was not to be!
As far as I know, the single was moderately successful in Italy, so you may be lucky in that direction.
Yes, I am in touch with all the Warhorse guys. I gig with Pete Parks most weeks. On March 14th this year, we got together to help Mac Poole celebrate his 60th birthday and performed five tunes, which was quite an exhilarating experience. This was the first time we had performed since our re-union several years ago and hopefully we will be doing some more gigs before the end of 2005.
 



I got it!!!!!!!!!

I have a picture sleeve single of Nick Simper's Dynamite sitting in front of me on this desk!

If anyone sees Nick, tell him that I found it! After 6 years of searching!!!!

Thanks to a very valued forum member for showing me the light!

A great version of St. Louis, but the highlight is definitely the b-side. Soul Rider is a magnificent slice of funky rock. Wow, that's some groove.
