Some of the best shows at The Roxy in Hollywood that I attended as a youth,(besides Peter Gabriel);were Brand X with Phil Collins & Morris Pert (Three days).(Phil made this Los Angeles guitarist laugh hard playing his little cassette deck closing and opening the curtains over and over of the Roxy playing "The 20th-Century Fox Fanfare" by Alfred Newman before Brand X performed.
(Later back stage,Phil would run his little cassette deck with the sound of a loud chainsaw over all a lot of us including myself.Too funny classic times...!!)

I have to admit I loved Brand X in it's hey day of the 70s and early 80s, even saw them open up for JM  at the old Morris Stage in NJ.
For me there was only one Brand X and it was then.
But to keep resurrecting the name etc Ugh, I get tired of hearing it
Interesting to note that either marketing or the old " I get my name on the bill or I'm not in the band "  thing  coming to light here with Sancious ( yes a great musician) name up front.

Glad to see that keyboards are included. Their sound was a little thin the last time around. BTW, whatever happened to Frank Katz?

I'm not too sure as the status of that whole thing is. I haven't been notified of any of the future plans. Hopefully they will do something sooner than later, with or without Sancious.

On John's Facebook page, he just posted this:

"Due to unsatifactory agency/booking practices.The band Brand X will probably not perform for at least 6 - 7 months.  John Goodsall is currently available for live & studio projects."

I'll let you know more as I hear about it.  David Sancious is touring with Sting, so he was out of the mix anyway.

^ I checked Chuck's link, and alas, no Peter Robinson.
          Anybody know if he is currently musically active, and if so, with whom?

any chance of former Brand X member Peter Robinson being involved?
