One of the most highly influential and recognisable names from the English Rock scene, Eddie & The Hot Rods have enjoyed a career that has now spanned over 40 years.

Recognised as one of the founding fathers of the punk era, they were simply interested in playing loud, fast, in your face Rock ‘n’ Roll rather than bad mouthing the Queen or fermenting anarchy. The energy and attitude certainly endeared them to the punks, but the hard and fast style that made Eddie & The Hot Rods one of the most exciting bands of the era has never really dated .

Unfortunately, in October 2019 came the awful news that founder member Barrie Masters had passed away at the age of only 63 after a legendary career at the sharp end of the band. Decisions about the bands future were soon overtaken by the arrival of the global Covid-19 pandemic, which effectively halted all live music activity for the next 18 months.

Thanks to the enduring appeal of the music, support from their fans and a never failing desire to get out there and make some noise, the band have decided to continue touring and always, with the utmost respect for Barrie's memory.

Now fronted on Vocals by Ian 'Dipster' Dean with Simon Bowley on Drums and Richard Holgarth on Guitar, this line up has been the core of The Hot Rods for the last 20 years. Joined by Bassist Mic Stoner, ex Chords) they continue to serve up a high energy mix of those classic Eddie & The Hot Rods songs and brand new tracks.

Recently, Eddie & The Hot Rods have been seen out and about on tour with Stiff Little Fingers and previously with Status Quo on their 2012 arena tour. They're also often found sharing the stage with old friends like Nine Below Zero, Dr Feelgood, Dept S, The Members and From The Jam. As well as regular trips to Europe and Japan they completed their fifth USA tour a couple of years back.

Whether it’s in an Arena, Theatre, Club or Festival, Eddie & The Hot Rods always deliver a blisteringly energetic blast of proper Rock ‘n’ Roll.
