Now for another piece of news that may leave a few people wondering! Our beloved drummer Ryan Aston also has a day job which clashes with this tour. His band Paper Aeroplanes are about to release an album on May 13th to coincide with a tour they have planned alongside the album launch http://www.paperaeroplanesmusic.com/
Ryan therefore is also excused from Ultimate Eagles duties for this tour only.
WHO! WHO! WHO! You may ask is fit to walk into the shoes of Rybo?
I can now confirm that John Tonks is the WHO!
We don’t just accept any old drummer in Ultimate Eagles. No, we scour the earth for immortal players of immense talent and will only consider those who revere the Eagles word and... normally speak Welsh. Not this time though...Tonksy hails from London and has a cv as long as a gorilla’s arm.
He has worked and recorded with Chris de Burgh, Duran Duran, Steve Winwood, Paul Young, Fish, Neneh Cherry, The Streets, Sugababes and Bonnie Tyler to name but a few.
He even did a short stint with Thunder (Harry was ill).
He has done lots and lots of TV work including a show for Lulu where he played in the house band for Elton John, Sting, Ronan Keating and Maurice Gibb.
Tonksy is a massive Eagles’ fan and can’t wait to meet you all!

Lots of you have been asking as to the whereabouts of Chris Childs on our upcoming tour in May.
As many of you already know, Chris’s day job is bass player for rock giants Thunder http://www.thunderonline.com/site/ who are touring with Journey and Whitesnake this May.
Chris therefore is excused from Ultimate Eagles duty for this run of shows. The good news however is we have a splendid replacement in (yes, another Welshman) Andy Collins.
Andy is a founder member of The Storys http://www.thestorys.co.uk/ and has played alongside the likes of Sir Elton John, Celine Dion, Joe Cocker and Van Morrison.
He has actually appeared on stage with Joe Walsh himself at a Jim Cappaldi gala evening featuring Bill Wyman, Ray Cooper, Yusaf Islam, Jon Lord, Steve Winwood and Garry Moore.
Andy is also booked to play alongside John Carpenter Cash (Johnny Cash’s son) in Nashville this coming August.
Have we sold him to you?
