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.
