Richard Newman never seeks publicity and rarely gives an interview. But, at 47, he is widely respected in the music business as one of the UK's most accomplished rock drummers. In a career spanning three decades Richard has played with many of the legends of rock music, including Steve Marriott, Joe Brown, Mark Knopfler, Jim Capaldi, Dave Gilmour, Rory Gallagher, Glenn Hughes and Alvin Lee. Richard's dad was top 60’s drummer Tony Newman of Sounds Incorporated who subsequently worked with Little Richard, Jeff Beck, David Bowie, Crystal Gayle, Marc Bolan, Albert Lee and the Everly Brothers. And Richard's mum, Margot, sang with the Vernon Girls and their spin-off group, the Breakaways.
