Former Power Quest bassist to step in on European tour

Power Quest have announced that former bassist and co-founder Steve Scott (2001-2009) will join the band for a series of tour dates in Europe while Paul Finnie awaits the birth of his first child.

Paul Finnie commented: “I’m sad to be missing out on what I am sure will be a great tour with Freedom Call. All the guys in PQ have known for a while that I wouldn’t be available during this period due to the imminent birth of my first child. However, I didn’t see any reason why the rest of the boys should miss out on this great opportunity to get out and perform in front of some of our fans in Europe. I wish the boys all the best for the tour. I would also like to take the opportunity to thank Steve Scott for filling in on bass and essentially making the tour possible. I couldn’t have picked a better man for the job and I know Steve’s looking forward to being back in the saddle for these 4 shows. I look forward to being back with the guys for our appearance at PPM Fest in April. Hope to see and meet plenty of our fans there. Until then, keep rocking!”

Steve Scott replies: “The biggest surprise of the year was when I received a phone call from Steve Williams asking me to join this tour, the funny thing is, I was listening to “Blood Alliance” when he called, thinking to myself, damn these songs are catchy! Freedom Call will be the perfect band to support on tour, they are top notch live and one of my favourite bands in the power metal realm. Yes, it is sad Paul can’t do this tour as he has been doing a brilliant job on bass, but I wish Paul all the best with the new adventure ahead and hope everything goes smoothly for him and family. I have to say it will be fantastic to be back on stage with PQ, who would of thought Power Quest would still be going when Steve Williams and I formed the band 11 years ago. I am very much looking forward to see some familiar faces in the audiences again and to be back on the road in Europe with Power Quest, the “NEW” set list will tickle many a PQ fans ears too !!!!! I can’t wait.”
