Reviews & Comments
Oct 30, 2007 - davidduran on Paul Collins
Paul Collins is a rock legend from The Beat & The Nerves

At the age of 17, Paul Collins founded a legendary rock group called The Nerves with Peter Case and Jack Lee in 1974. The Nerves toured with The Ramones and are best known for an EP containing the song Hanging On The Telephone, later covered by Blondie on the "Parallel Lines" album. When The Nerves disbanded in 1977, Paul Collins formed a harder-rocking band called The Beat, also known as The Paul Collins' Beat in other parts of the world.

During the 1990s, Paul Collins made the transition from rock band frontman to full-time solo artist, playing country, s rock, Americana, alt country and southern rock. Paul Collins recorded several solo albums with help from an all-star assembly of musicians, including Jeff Trott (Sheryl Crow), guitarist Chuck Prophet, guitarist Dave Immergluck (Counting Crows), drummer Kenney Dale Johnson and bassist Rowland Salley from Chris Isaak's band.

With support from longtime friend Dee Dee Ramone (bassist of The Ramones), Paul Collins re-formed The Beat during the late 1990s and recorded a new studio album entitled "Flying High." This album featured all-new material and was followed by several radio singles and music videos for Will You Be A Woman and Afton Place.

As the demand for Collins' classic material increased, he made the decision to re-release the first four Paul Collins' Beat albums on CD. In 2007, Paul Collins' Beat recorded a live album spanning Collins' entire career, including key songs from the 1970s and 1980s.

Included on this album were guitar-crunching versions of Rock N Roll Girl, Let Me Into Your Life and Walking Out On Love.

Paul Collins continues to tour and record new material both as a solo artist and with his rock band Paul Collins' Beat (The Beat). Paul Collins' Beat perform more than 200 dates a year around the world.
