Imagine what would happen if Jimi Hendrix, Robert Johnson & Janis Joplin met at The Crossroads and decided to form a band. That band would sound like Willie J & The Bad Books.
This band lights up every stage and takes no prisoners.
They bring a fresh approach to blues rock laced with psychedelic heavy grooves and jaw dropping riffage. Every show is a soul sacrifice from the band that demands you to boogie.
Comprised of Willie J Maxwell – Lead Vocals & Guitar, Rick Steward – Guitar, Lap Steel & Backing Vocals, Matt Forge – Bass, Fru Parsons – Drums & Eileen Hodgkins – Vocals & Organ.
Between the five members that make up The Bad Books there is decades of experience in the art of stage craft.
My Dream Rider
Jamie Oliver – Great accent, everyone loves a naked chef & the food looks okay too.
A podiatrist and or someone with a foot fetish – just to take the weight off when I’m done stompin’.
Rose Tattoo – my senses are excited by the smell of roses & i’m contemplating getting my first tattoo…
Christian Dior – I wanna know when I hit the floor, that I’m lookin’ my best in haute couture.
An Interior Designer specializing in regency style – all I wanna see is blue velvet & hardwood, baby.
Mount Franklin – Literally Mount Franklin, I wanna suckle fresh from the fountain.
An unknown legend on a Harley Davidson – I wanna see her long blonde hair colliding with the very air I breathe.
A hole in the roof, in the shape of a heart.
A long walk to the shop to get a sausage roll, cause we all know, that it’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock n roll.
God – Cause she seems like a mad dog.
Willie J & The Bad Books have just dropped their debut single – Backdoor Man. They’re Launching their single at the Northcote Social Club Jan 6th, if you like dancing until you faint, pop along.
