“(Bernie) did me a great favour. If it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t be doing it now. I’d have given up” – Ozzy Osbourne.
What a career Bernie Torme has had. Playing for Ozzy Osbourne, Gillan, Dee Snider, Atomic Rooster, and many more. Now the legendary guitarist is drawing a line under this career for his ‘Final Fling’ tour.
See dates below:
22nd Nov – Facebar, Reading

This follows his crowd-funded triple album Dublin Cowboy. Bernie had this to say:
“In the past you were pretty distant and separated from your fans with a record label in between. Making these albums with pledge campaigns has been a great experience. I like having the connection with fans and getting the feedback direct on making an album.”
Bernie is expected to release another album later this year.
