    Author: Charlie Coffils


    This is the story of a wee boy from a family in Glasgow, Scotland who grew up to experience the dream of appearing with the legendary Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin) on Cartoone’s debut album on the famous Atlantic Record label, and also touring the USA in support of Led Zeppelin and other great bands.


    Never in his wildest dreams would he have believed that he would share the stage with the best drummer in the world, John Bonham, plus Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones, when Zeppelin were just starting out and trying to break America.  That is what most musicians hope to achieve, but most never do.


    And then tragedy struck...




    ‘Charlie could be the next John Bonham’

    Maggie Bell & Les Harvey (Stone-The-Crows) in 1969


    ‘Long term, we have the most faith in UK bands Led Zeppelin and Scottish band Cartoone to do well’

    Jerry Wexler & Ahmet Ertegun (Atlantic Records) in 1968


    ‘Really enjoyed the Cartoone CD Charlie, real 60s stuff, excellent.’

    Richard Desmond (OK/Express/Channel 5/Health Lottery)
