One of the most highly influential and recognisable names from the English Rock scene, Eddie & The Hot Rods have enjoyed a career that has now spanned nearly 40 years and continue to wow audiences all over the world.
Whether it’s in an arena, club or at a festival, Eddie & The Hot Rods always deliver a blisteringly energetic blast of proper Rock ‘n’ Roll.
Although often categorised as one of the founding fathers of the Punk era, they were simply interested in playing loud, fast, in your face Rock ‘n’ Roll, rather than bad mouthing the Queen or fermenting anarchy. The energy and attitude certainly endeared them to the Punks, but the hard and fast style that made Eddie & The Hot Rods one of the most exciting bands of the era has never really dated or gone out of style.
Now fronted on Vocals by Ian ‘Dipster’ Dean with Simon Bowley on Drums and Richard Holgarth on Guitar, this line up has been the core of Eddie and the Hot Rods for the last 23 years. Joined by Bassist Mic Stoner, (ex Chords UK ) they decided to write new material, and, in 2022 the band signed a world wide record deal with US label Renaissance Records. “Guardians Of The Legacy”, their first studio album in 16 years, was unleashed this spring to rave reviews.
