Phil Mitchell
"Formed on Canvey Island in Essex in the early 1970's Dr Feelgood has become one of the most popular live rhythm and blues acts in the world. The raw and uncompromising style that made them so popular resulted in the band achieving a number one chart position with the album ""Stupidity"" - a testament to their dynamic stage show. Dr Feelgood have enjoyed a string of hit singles in many countries including ""Milk & Alcohol"", ""Down at the Doctors"", ""Roxette"", ""She's a wind up"" and ""See you later Alligator"". The last album to feature Lee Brilleaux, ""Down at the Doctors"", was recorded live on Canvey Island at the band's own music bar just two months before he died. Lee's final wish was for the band to carry on and so it was decided to continue. The current line-up of the band is led by their drummer Kevin Morris, and features Steve Walwyn on lead guitar, Phil Mitchell on bass and charismatic vocalist, Robert Kane, formerly of ""The Animals II"". May 2000 saw the UK release on EMI Records of ""Chess Masters"", the band's own tribute to the Chess brothers and the influential record label which was the home of the finest blues artists. Grand Records recent releases include ""Finely Tuned"", a collection featuring the guitarists of Dr Feelgood, ""Speeding Thru Europe"", an exciting live set recorded at various shows between September 2002 and January 2003, and ""Wolfman Calling"", an album celebrating some of Lee's finest blues recordings. The band still undertakes a full touring schedule and has completed tours of most European and Scandinavian countries, a full summer of festivals and a triumphant return to Japan. 2004 sees Dr Feelgood maintaining their hectic touring schedule across the globe, still thrilling the crowds with the vitality of their explosive live show."
