The Mavericks ~ Paul Deakin

Cathy talks to Paul Deakin, drummer with The Mavericks ...
However, prior to the split they were touring constantly and as drummer Paul Deakin tells me "although it was wonderful, towards the end we were all burnt out and it took the joy out of it... it just stopped being fun."
After they split up in 2004 they worked on various solo projects with lead singer Raul Malo releasing 6 albums and Paul focussing on his love for carpentry as well as music. It was only at the end of last year when they were approached to do a reunion tour that the old Maverick magic came together and in the space of just a few months they have a brand new album out and are embarking on a new tour.
The new album "In Time" is getting rave reviews and Paul believes it could well be the best album they have ever recorded.
The new album is fresh and full of fantastic songs such as Amsterdam Moon, Back In Your Arms and my personal favourite - Come Onto Me, which Paul enjoys playing live Raul had written a whole bunch of songs and the band decided to go into the studio to record this new material.

Artist Biography - The Mavericks [cached]

"I feel better about the band today than I have in two or three years," says bass player Robert Reynolds, who along with singer-songwriter Raul Malo, and drummer Paul Deakin, formed the Mavericks in Miami, Florida in 1989.

"It's a selfish thing," says Deakin, "but I've always said, 'Self-indulgence in a positive way.' Pleasing ourselves first has always been our blueprint for success."
"I'd put it somewhere between the Willburys and early Mavericks," says Deakin.
Adds Deakin: "Imagine turning on your AM radio in the 1960s.
Says Deakin: "A little bit of personal contentment can go a long way in a band like us. We've always been about enjoying music. We still have the same passion, but I think being happy in your personal life gives you the confidence to go on."
And will they still be in existence ten years from now?
"Who knows? says Deakin.

Co-founder and drummer Paul Deakin ceaselessly dominated from his riser, making his kit look tiny as he battered it in the name of propellant springiness. His energy didn't abate during the nearly two-and-a-half-hour set.
