Spike announces forthcoming Quireboys album ‘Wardour Street’ and new single ‘Jeeze Louise’ as Thunder's Luke Morley steps in on guitar duty
"I think all you rock n' rollers of a certain age should remind the younger generation of the Queerboys and Terraplane, and how we rocked 'Bush Telfer's' Marquee Club on Wardour Street all them years ago.
"There was never a dull moment in Soho in them days, from going to the St Moritz to Buttz n' Spikes Club or The Ship or Intrepid Fox.
"Then all of a sudden - we became the Quireboys, they became Thunder and we played huge festivals all over the world plus doing some amazing shows together.
"To this day we all remain great friends, so I am very happy to announce that Luke Morley from Thunder will be joining us on guitar for the new album 'Wardour Street', and for festivals and live concert tours in 2024.
"Guy Bailey adored Luke Morley from the first day they met. Guy once said to me Luke has an amazing feel for soul music, country music and he certainly knows his rock n' roll inside out, but Luke also has the skill I don't have of being able to play the guitar the wrong way around, ha! They are both incredible English guitarists and songwriters, they certainly are a breed of their own, as you can hear in Luke's playing on 'Jeeze Louise'. So me, Nigel, Chris and Rudy would like to thank Luke for helping us out, but also to Danny, Ben, Harry and Chris for their loyal support, and don't worry, you can have him back, ha!
"Everyone get ready for a rock n' roll 2024, love Spike x"
From Luke: "Obviously I go way back with Quireboys and I’ve always loved the band so I’m delighted to be able help the guys out while Thunder is taking a break. I hope I can do the new material justice!"

NOV/DEC TOURING WITH THE DEAD DAISIES
Hey everyone, I've got some great news. I will be joining my old mates The Dead Daisies for a run of shows in Nov/Dec. The guys have kindly asked me to be their special guest and I'm really looking forward to hitting the road with them and revisiting many venues I know well and some venues for the first time, all across Europe and Scandinavia.
I will be promoting the new single from the brand new Quireboys album which will be released early next year, so I will be playing all the hits with a few surprises and even a few new songs to give you a taste of the best Quireboys album yet.
Below is the official release from The Dead Daisies so for all you rock 'n' roll fans out there, come down early and let's get this party started, and thank you all for keeping rock 'n' roll alive with The Dead Daisies and Quireboys.
I'll see you at the bar.
Love Spike x

Spike has shared some incredibly sad news about Quireboys co-founder and best friend Guy Bailey
I'm heartbroken to have to write this.
My best friend Guy Bailey passed away peacefully in hospital last night in the arms of his beloved Bianca.
Guy was the kindest, funniest man you could have the pleasure of being around. He was loved by everyone who he ever worked with, all the bands he ever toured with and all the Quireboys fans he ever met. He certainly loved you all more than you will ever know.
I have so much I would like to share and say to everyone about him but this is just such a hard time for me and everyone close to him. I hope you all understand.
But for the Quireboys fans out there I would just like to say, me and Guy Bailey have written the songs for a new album, and me and Chris Johnstone, Nigel Mogg and Rudy Richman will fulfill his wishes that these songs are recorded and a new Quireboys album will be released this year.
So everyone raise a glass for Guy Bailey and lets keep rock 'n' roll alive for him.
I love you mate.
I know you're having a drink with our dads now and looking down and watching us bubble.
Your best mate Spikey xx
