Dr Feelgood

The Early Days


Info Supplied by John Warburg



Formed on Canvey Island in Essex in the 1970s Dr. Feelgood remains one of the most popular and exciting live rhythm and blues acts in the world.


The raw and uncompromising sound and style of their music resulted in the album Stupidity which immediately went to the number one position in the U.K. charts.


Dr. Feelgood have also enjoyed global success with a string of hit singles including Roxette, Back in the Night, Milk and Alcohol, Down at the Doctors, She Does it Right, Going Back Home and See You Later Alligator - which gave the group their first gold record.


The last album to feature Lee Brilleaux - Down at the Doctors, was recorded live at the Dr. Feelgood Music Bar on Canvey Island (now the site of the Oysterfleet Hotel) just two months before he died.


The current line up features the rhythm section Kevin Morris on drums and Phil Mitchell on bass both celebrating 25 years in the band this year, Steve Walwyn on guitar and vocalist Robert Kane.


In 2000 EMI records released Chess Masters, Dr. Feelgood’s tribute to the Chess Label, home to many of the finest blues artists of the 20th century and the first album to feature Robert on vocals and harmonica.


Dr. Feelgood’s recent releases include a DVD entitled Live in London which features many extras, including footage from the Lee Brilleaux Memorial 2005 and Repeat Prescription - a collection of some of the bands most enduring songs but with a fresh approach.


2008 sees the band continue to tour extensively throughout the world visiting exciting new places and thrilling crowds with the vitality of their live show.
