Known for songs such as Bad Bad Boy’, ‘Broken Down Angel’ , ‘Love Hurts’ and ‘My White Bicycle’.

The current tour introduces new front man Linton Osborne replacement for Dan Cafferty who was forced to retire following continued issues with his health. Talking of Linton coming on board, the website declared that “His enthusiasm and energy has been a shot in the arm for the band, and a real boost after the keen sense of loss and sadness at the sudden retirement of our dear friend and brother, Dan.”

Linton joins the current lineup which features sole remaining original member Pete Agnew on bass, his son Lee on drums and guitarist Jimmy Murrison. The band currently have plans to tour in Russia, America and Europe in 2014 as well as releasing the final McCafferty fronted album for the band.

A lifelong passion for music matched with a geeky fascination for social media and websites resulted in the creation of Inverness Gigs back in 2010. The aim of the site is to help promote, support and generally raise awareness of the local music scene.In fairness fifteen years of being a psychiatric nurse never prepared me for the experiences that we have had over the last few years and the evolution of Inverness Gigs has certainly been a steep learning curve.I currently write (less and less), edit and co-ordinate most of the Inverness Gigs activities.Occasionally seen on Twitter, and  LinkedIn, if you want get in touch you can contact me direct at chris@igi.gs
