FROM THE ARCHIVE
This in-depth feature with John was produced by British DJ Damian Watson and first broadcast on BFBS Radio in 2010, when John was in remission and the demos for Replay were in full flow.
It includes some rare clips of songs that didn't make it onto Replay when the album was released in 2011.
"I was an Outfield fan as a teenager in the 80s," says Damian, "and went on to play the band regularly on my Rock Show on BFBS. It was always frustrating for us British fans that The Outfield never got much airplay in their home country but of course they more than made up for that in the US and elsewhere. Replay was such a return to form, with some of the strongest songs John had ever written, Tony in fine voice and Alan back in the fold. We all wish it hadn't been a swansong."
All our love,
The Outfield Team
