AT THE CATHEDRAL

I was inspired to write this song when I saw prince William and Harry at a memorial service for their fallen comrades. We had not rehearsed this performance before, Jose Antonio Rodrigues and Professor Corrie England and myself gave an impromptu performance for the great Dieter Dierks during a break from filming Acoustic Fever at his studio...we didn't know the cameras were rolling, thank heavens they were.

In 2011/12 my buddy Hedley Taylor flew to America to promote "The Mission" an album I had written to celebrate the service that their young men and women had given for their country and their fellow man. Throughout my life I have been inspired by their sacrifice and willingness to put it all on the line against tyranny and oppression. We covered 35,000 miles by road in the first seven weeks playing benifits in all manner of venues... hospitals, concert halls military bases.

ROCK SHOT REVIEWS REWIND 2017

Rewind Festival 2017

Rewind 2017 had a king of guitar in the form of John Parr.

The man, who stole people’s hearts and hit number one with St. Elmo’s Fire (Man In Motion), delivered one of the best sets I have ever witnessed at Rewind. Full of drama, the Restless Heart performer rocked the audience, almost setting his guitar on fire. There are just a few guitarists with as much passion and skill, and if you factor in his sense of humour and ability to connect with the audience, he has it all. He’s a magician, able to change a guitar into a living, breathing creature capable of all the softness and depth one could imagine. No wonder there was a long queue of fans waiting for the opportunity to chat or take a selfie with him.

ROB LOWE ROASTED BY ST. ELMO'S FIRE

John Parr with Rob Lowe

Rob Lowe has become the latest victim of Comedy Central's Celebrity Roasts. In its irreverant way the roast charts Lowe's rise, fall and rise again.

Born on March 17, 1964 Lowe began his career as a young boy model who turned to acting during his teens. During the 1980's Lowe was best known as a member of the “Brat Pack”,

AVAILABLE NOW

the group of young, powerful, and reckless actors and actresses including Demi Moore, Judd Nelson and Emilio Estevez. However, Lowe together with his Brat Pack friends, found their very first fame through his appearance in John Parr's "St. Elmo's Fire (Man In Motion)" music video in 1985.

Acknowledging the importance of music in Lowe's career the show opened with the 80s-inspired song The Burden of Being Wonderful” by Steel Panther. But the big question on the audiences' lips was “When am I gonna hear some ‘St Elmo's Fire - Man in Motion’ on this roast?” and six minutes and 42 seconds into the show they were treated to a special “St. Elmo's Fire Roast” recorded by John Parr in honour of Rob Lowe.

The Roast Of Rob Lowe is on Comedy Central (UK) on Friday 9th September 22:00

THE MISSION - ALBUM RELEASED

Legendary singer/songwriter John Parr has released what is considered by many to be his strongest album to date.

The Mission Album MP3 Download

“Parr knows the key to creating great rock music. It's simple, kick-ass guitar, a power-house voice and songs that tell a story.”

Chris Shapiro - Retropulse.

"The Mission is inspired by our fighting men and women who put themselves in harms way for our freedom. It is 14 songs covering almost every aspect of the Military but it is not a marching bands record. It's rock, it''s intimate, power and passion, life, love and sacrifice. Much of the proceeds of this album are being donated to 3 incredible Military charities:The USO, Military Families and USA Cares. It is about raising awareness and funds for Military men and women as they make the difficult transition back into ordinary life."
