Michael Chapman - 50 (Paradise of Batchelors) album review

Album Review

Legendary UK guitarist celebrates half century as a recording artist

Now 75, Michael Chapman is an unsung British guitar hero who proves that age is no impediment to a rock player as long as they maintain a spirit of curiosity. He is properly bracketed alongside the whippersnapper likes of Roy Harper and Richard Thompson, but he’s also lauded by Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore, who in comparing him to Kandinsky acknowledges the modernist splash and sweep of his playing.
