Jim Cregan (Guitarist, Producer, Writer) Short Biog
Jim’s early work with Family, Linda Lewis, Cat Stevens and Cockney Rebel eventually lead him to join the new band started
by Rod Stewart, after the break-up of The Faces. Jim stayed for 18 years as his band-leader, co-writer and
co-producer. Together they wrote such songs as Tonight I'm Yours, Forever Young, Passion and more recently Brighton Beach from Rod's Number 1 album "Time".
Jim has 3 ASCAP awards for outstanding songwriting. In the mid nineties Jim returned to writing and producing, with
credits ranging from Willie Nelson and Kid Rock, to The Gypsy Kings and Joe Cocker, among many, many others. Jim toured and played on Katie Melua's first two albums - both reaching number 1.  He has received over 50 gold & platinum records to date, and his guitar solo on Cockney Rebel’s Come Up And See Me (Make Me Smile) still sounds alright!
