| With Nicky Simper (ex-‘Deep
Purple’ and bassist supreme),

Nick again with The James Royal Band.
Jim has the most powerful, soulful voice I’ve heard,
and although a well-respected singer in his time,
having worked with Rick Wakeman, Albert Lee, etc.,
has never got the success he deserved.
He now lives in Toowoomba, Australia
shortly after joining Hobo,
a well-known band on the country music circuit during the 1980s.
