Cregan & Co Biography
The Birth of Cregan & Co… The Faces broke up in 1975 and Rod Stewart started his own band.
One of the most influential guitarists in this line-up was Jim Cregan. With Rod, he co-wrote many of songs of that period between ’76 and ’94. Jim also played and sang on all those famous albums, co-produced tracks, made the videos and toured the world several times with Rod. Now, more than 40 years on, Jim, together with four outstanding musicians, performs that well-loved heritage music under the new name ‘Cregan & Co’.
Ben Mills is an accomplished singer/songwriter in his own right, he reached the final of UK X-Factor in 2006 (the year Leona Lewis won), and launched a successful solo career on the back of it. He’s “having a blast” singing Rod Stewart’s back catalogue, with the man who co-wrote the songs, and he’s enjoying putting his own stamp on the hits that everyone knows and loves. Drummer Harry James is best known for his work with legendary UK rock band Thunder, as well as drumming for Magnum, Steve Harley, Jon Lord and Glenn Hughes. The musical backbone of the band is completed by Bass player Pat Davey (Tom Robinson Band) and pianist Sam Tanner (Alexander O’Neil, Nate James & Duffy)
