Deadline in 2000 – Me, Andy, Steve and Chris. The best line-up in my opinion.

Just before the Solar Eclipse in August I got a call from yet another Chris. He was in a band called Promise. They mainly did obscure rock covers by even more obscure bands, but they were trying to write their own material and wondered if I was interested.

Just after the eclipse we rehearsed for the first time at Peach Studios in Rotherham. That first rehearsal was the beginning of a good thing!

In February 2000 we played a gig as Promise – then the next day we unveiled Deadline at the Battle of the Bands and went on to win.

A lot of tours, tons of gigs and loads of recordings later it started to fall apart.




Chris and I joined a covers band (me briefly) – Chris then quit and we got a new drummer in… we lasted another couple of years as Deadline.

Steve then quit and Dale from Tikaboo Peak came onboard – and Deadline ended for me.

Deadline started to change. I wasn’t a fan of the change – and it evolved into Crimes of Passion.
