The Journey 1970-1980

Eric Clapton tour With another great band behind her she supported Eric Clapton on his early 70's tour with Delaney, Bonnie and friends with George Harrison and Billy Preston and hit the road again in England and Germany. After the tour Eric produced some great super-sessions for Pat on Polydor records, but the tracks were never released. Her next career phase was to be stage work and in 1970 she appeared alongside PJ Proby in the pioneering rock musical, Catch My Soul, produced by Jack Good.CATCH MY SOUL.JPG

Working in the theatre was an uneasy experience for Pat, as she yearned to record and tour as a solo artiste again. She then met Fuzzy Samuel, bassist with Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young and together they formed a funk-rock fusion band called Axis, in tribute to Jimi Hendrix. They had a son, Kodzo and returned to live in the USA as she was disillusioned with the way the music scene had changed in England. The emerging punk music scene was taking over and there seemed to be no room for the music that she and Fuzzy were creating.

Still her distinctive sound can be heard on numerous recordings by such artists as Humble Pie, Nick Drake, Graham Nash, Steven Stills Manassas, Doctor John and blues legend Freddie King, to name a few. Whilst living in LA tragedy struck the family with the death of her daughter Debbie. This sad incident separated Pat from lots of things for many years but she resurfaced in the 1980's working with such people as Peter Gabriel, Justin Haywood and Steve Marriott (again).
