Cooper , guitarist Sandy Mitchie and bassist Mic Stoner
they set out to perform The Chords classic tunes
whilst writing and recording new material . Their first

Eddie and the Hot Rods are one of the most highly
influential and recognisable names from the English Rock
scene, enjoying a career that has now spanned four
decades they continue to entertain audiences across the
globe. In 1977 the band released a track called ‘Do
Anything You Wanna Do’ which seemed to chime with the
prevailing wind at the time and so spent the whole
Summer in the charts reaching Number 9 before Island
Records withdrew the single after sales of 475,000 copies.
The energy and attitude that made Eddie & The Hot Rods
one of the most exciting bands of the era, crossing genres
of R’n’B, Rock and Blues has never changed.
In 2023 the band released their 8th studio album titled
‘Guardians Of The Legacy’ it has already spawned a
