Classic Album Tuesdays Presents Back In Black by AC/DC
Special Guest Presenter: John Cherry, founder of Locksley Distilling Co Ltd and the distiller of Sir Robin Of Locksley Distilled Artisan Gin.
An evening of gin and rock music with John Cherry and Sir Robin of Locksley gin.
Back In Black is the album that cemented John Cherry’s passion for rock music both as a youngster and into adulthood. John had a classical music background from school days, including violin, but took this learning with him to playing bass for Sheffield rock band Midnite in the late 1980s. John spent several years working in France and New York before returning to Sheffield in 2013 to set up his distillery.
Back In Black is AC/DC’s seventh album and the first after the death of their lead singer Bon Scott (hence the black, mourning cover and title). With geordie vocalist Brian Johnson on board, they debunked to the Bahamas in Spring 1980 and recorded the album in the midst of tropical storms. It has gone on to sell over 50m copies, ranking it as the second best selling album in history.
Tickets for the event include a free glass of Sir Robin of Locksley Distilled Artisan Gin and tonic, served just before the needle drops. Afterwards there will be a Q&A with John Cherry, where we’ll learn more of the incredible story of the growth of Sheffield’s premium gin.
