A NEW HORIZON DAWNS
Let me make one thing clear…the new album from Chariot is a killer. More of the world needs to capitulate under the might of this album. Driven by this objective, I took a walk down to the pub to meet up with Pete Franklin, lead vocalist and guitarist with Chariot. He also co-founded the band back in 1983, formed the band Dirty Deeds (with pre-Judas Priest guitarist Ritchie Faulkner) before then reforming Chariot around 2004.
Besides discussing “The New Horizon Dawns” Pete makes some intriguing revelations such as his connection with a pre-Iron Maiden Paul Di’Anno and his life’s crossroads with Steve Harris who lived within walking distance from him, in this the North Eastern corner of London.
