Passion Spent on myspace

Passion Spent on Soundcloud

Welcome to the first P A S S I O N   S P E N T website, which was originally created in August 2006 to publicise the charity gig the band undertook (at the request of Sue and Simon Smith) to raise funds for The Motor Neurone Disease Association.

Passion Spent were:

  • Mark Johnson – Drums
  • Jim Orwin – Vocals
  • Dave Rushby – Guitar
  • Steve Sanderson – Bass
  • Ian Sunderland – Keyboards

During the course of the band's history, the line-up changed on several occasions. We'd like to acknowledge the contributions and the participation of the following musicians: Brian Wrigglesworth, Mick Douthwaite, Rick Wilkinson, Gavin Carey, Andy Bowering, Pete Sherwood, Dominic Lourie, Ben Lourie and Carrie Martin. We also played one gig (Scunthorpe Baths Hall) with the superb combination of Paul Hewson (Huey) on drums and Merv Dobson on bass guitar.
