More than 21 years after “King King,” The Red Devils are ready for international exposure again.
UK journalist Paul Rees has taken on the Devils for an article for an upcoming edition of Classic Rock magazine.
The story comes on the heels of a feature in the November 2013 Classic Rock on unreleased albums. Rees wrote an item on the Mick Jagger blues album. No new ground was broken, but it serves as a prelude to a larger feature on the Devils.
We know Rees has been in contact with band members, so the story will be first-hand — and a first of its kind. The “King King” lineup has rarely been interviewed about the album, and certainly never by a publication as mainstream as Classic Rock.
Rees is no stranger to the Devils. He told us that he saw the band a couple of times in the early 1990s in London, and interviewed Lester Butler at the time.
His latest book, “Robert Plant: A Life” (HarperCollins), was released in October of last year.
His work has appeared in The Independent, Classic Rock and the Evening Standard, and he has been editor of Q and Kerrang! as well, according to his Amazon bio.
When we know more, we will have it here on No Fightin’.
