Tony Clarkin talked to Rockpages.gr on a video interview which is coming up during Magnum’s recent visit in Greece and commented on the formation of Kingdom Of Madness by former keyboardist Mark Stanway featuring Micky Barker, RIchard Bailey, Laurence Archer, Mo Birch (all of them having played in Magnum in the past), Neil Murray, Chris Ousey,. “It’s sort of annoying. But, he’s never written a song in his life, although he pretends he has written things. But, he has never written A song in his life. So, I don’t know what he would play if he didn’t play Magnum stuff”.
Do you think that you will move legally against him? “Well, you can’t do anything about it. You can’t really do anything. I mean we do own all the logos and all that stuff you know… So, he can’t use any of that. But, really it doesn’t really mean much to me. There are a couple of people in the band who are good players. I know that. But, so why they don’t write their own songs? That’s what I think. It is a tribute band and there is no way around it really. He keeps trying to say “it’s not a tribute band” and I am going “what?”.
