Glenn Tilbrook may be best known as one half of the creative duo behind Squeeze, but as a sell-out audience in Rothesay on Friday will testify, he’s also an outstanding solo performer.
Tilbrook rattled through all the biggest hit songs he co-wrote for Squeeze with Chris Difford, but his solo material went down equally well with the many fans from Bute and beyond who gathered to hear a set at Craigmore Bowling Club which was over all too quickly.
There was top-notch solo support too in the form of Bute-based singer-songwriter Anabrese, though if Tilbrook had one big rival for the limelight on Friday it was his own son, 11-year-old Leon, whose looks, demeanour and talent combined mean he has ‘future rock star’ written all over him in spite of his tender years.
The video above features all three artists, beginning with Anabrese’s ‘Live and Let Live’ and including three of Squeeze’s biggest hits, Up The Junction, Tempted and Take Me I’m Yours. Full review in the next issue of The Buteman - on sale from Thursday, August 21.
