Sunday Mail and DF Concerts Present Gun
GUN’s contemporary take on authentic rock gave them an edge over their peers during the mid-80s. Formed in Glasgow by the Gizzi brothers, they came to re-invent the rock ‘n’ roll genre. Their debut album, “Taking On The World, brought with it many successful singles, appearances, and guest slots with acts such as; The Rolling Stones, Bon Jovi, Simple Minds, Bryan Adams and Def Leppard
With critically acclaimed albums, singles, many awards and line up changes under their belt, GUN decided to call it a day in 1998. Fast forward 10 years to 2008 which saw GUN being awarded with the prestigious Nordoff Robbins Tartan Clef award for ‘Scotland’s Best Live Band’, leading to the band reuniting to an enthusiastic response.
A 20th anniversary “Taking On The World” tour was followed with the Gizzi brothers settling into writing mode, resulting in mini album “Popkiller”. The band hit the road again in 2008/2009 with a well-received UK and European tours including a UK tour with Lynyrd Skynyrd. Enthused by their return to the live scene and the positive response from a loyal fan base, Jools and Dante decided to go into the studio to record a new album. Fellow Glaswegians Paul McManus on drums and Derek Brown on bass completed the new line up.
