Dr. Feelgood have also enjoyed global success with a string of hit singles including Roxette, Back in the Night, Milk and Alcohol, She Does it Right 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 35 years), Steve Walwyn on guitar (28 years), and Robert Kane (formerly of The Animals) the most recent addition – joining in 1999.
Julien Temple’s film Oil City Confidential released in February 2010 tells the story of the band’s formative years featuring the Wilko Johnson era. May 2011 saw the digitally re-mastered re-release of Chessmasters, originally released in 2000 on EMI Records - the band’s tribute to the Chess label, home to many of the finest blues artists of the 20th century - and the first Dr Feelgood album to feature Robert on vocals.
The band continues to tour extensively throughout the world. www.drfeelgood.org
