3 Chord Trick is the debut album from Legacy Band - a new rock band formed by Alan Clark, Danny Cummings, Mel Collins and Phil Palmer - four members of one of the biggest bands in the world - Dire Straits. Alan, Phil and Steve Ferrone, who together produced this record, met and became great friends when they were members of Eric Clapton’s band.
These superb musicians have worked with many other iconic artists and bands. Steve Ferrone is Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers drummer, Mel Collins is an original member of King Crimson and their work, spanning more than three decades of music, has cemented their reputations in rock history. Their enduring friendship has, once again, brought them together and along with Marco Caviglia, Primiano Di Biase (Tom Jones, Paul McCartney, Pet Shop Boys, Rod Stewart and Tina Turner) and Pino Palladino.
Phil Palmer (Co-Producer, Guitars & Vocals) says "Chemistry. It’s what makes great albums! In my long career as a session man, these are the elements that produce the special music. With Steve Ferrone, Alan Clark, Pino Palladino and myself we set out to make an album of songs in the old way – 4 guys in a room at the same time bouncing ideas around to find the optimum solutions for groove, structure, melody, and atmosphere.
The Legacy album is now completed and it is the result of one year's work and a collective 150 years of experience. The way albums used to be made with passion, care and a mysterious and elusive alchemy that defies explanation. Listen to it. Get inside it. Feel what we felt when recording it. Live it!"
