Hi Everyone

 

I came across this amazing video of Amy singing 'Mr. Magic' at the SWR New Pop Festival in Germany in 2004. 

She was so awesome!

 

However, something is driving me crazy! I can't seem to find the name of the saxophone player (the guy on the left with longish hair wearing army fatigues and a black singlet top). 

I've searched far and wide but have been unable to come up with a name:(

 

Thus far, I've eliminated the following possibilities: Leon Michels, Atholl Ransome, Paul Heller, Ben Castle, & David Temple.

Their faces are a definite no-match:(

 

Here is a link to the video:

 

Also, I've attached a number of photos.

 

If anyone could help identify this sax player, I would be so grateful.

 

Thanks so much:)

I've always wondered that too. The only name that I could ever find was Frank Walden but I don't think it's him.

Yes, I came across the name 'Frank Walden' too, but his face is definitely a no-match. 

This guy seems impossible to find:(

I know what you mean! There's a huge resemblance to Kurt Cobain. It's so strange that I can't find his name anywhere. He, along with the other band members seem to have played a lot with Amy in 2004. I saw him in a video at Glastonbury and Sessions@AOL - both in 2004.

Maybe if someone could identify the name of the band, or some of the other band members, that might give me a lead. 

 

I was going to attach some more photos, but there seems to be no options to upload a photo. Sorry, I'm new here.

Aaah! Worked it out:)

 

Here are some photos of the bass player (blue top), the horn section, and the lead guitarist.

 

If anyone could identify any of these, that would be awesome!

Well I think the guitarist is Femi Temowo, right? But I don't know that he was in a band with the rest of them.

Hi sgh

 

Yes, have just checked images and you're right, the guitarist was definitely Femi Temowo.

From there, I was able to find out the name of the bass player. It's Pete Cochrane. 

The name of the saxophone player remains a mystery though. Will keep searching. Thank you so much for identifying the guitarist, as I'm sure this has led me a few steps closer in my search.

Band Members
Ben Edwards - trumpet & flugelhorn
Mark Brown - saxes

He is the same as in B2B tours.Frank Walden, and he was also her trumpet player in 2007. He looks like a different person because he changed his look, though.

I recognise the other two player in the horn section from Atlantic Horns.

Finally found his name. It turns out I was wrong in eliminating David Temple from the list, as it is in fact, David Temple.

 

He now has a mohawk!!!!

 

He plays for a band called Caro Emerald. 

 

Here's two photos. He looks so different.

Yeah, I'm also sure, that it's Dave Temple.

 

He was a grea sax player and also looked quite pretty (at least back then)
