- What a great time we had last night (Tuesday June 19th) shooting the video for for 'Oh My Days' and 'Eloise'. To everyone who came along to support us and cheer us on thank you - we had a brilliant time and a lot of fun and we hope you did as well. And a huge thank you to Jim Lea who came to support us and play on the video. Jim is a good friend of Jamies and both Jamie and Dave got to support Jim last year at his 'An Audience with Jim Lea at the Robin 2' gig. As life long Slade fans it was a boyhood dream and real privilege for them to perform with Jim last year at the Robin 2 - to then have Jim join and play along side them on one of their own songs last night was truly amazing. The video will be out in a few weeks - so keep watching!

- Cornerstone - Facebook – YouTube – Single Release - Taken Down . After some 15 years performing as Cornerstone and having finally got around to putting our heads above the parapet it seems our recent publicity and the release of “Taxi Rank” as a single has got us noticed in other lands!There is another band from Austria who are also called Cornerstone and they hold a registered trademark for the name. We tried to hold onto our name in the UK but due to them holding the trademark they were able to insist on having our YouTube, Facebook and the single ‘Taxi Rank’ taken down. Anyway, rather than go for a complete new name, and after reaching agreement with Cornerstone Austria, we have changed the band name to Kornastone – and re branded the website www.kornastone.com - We have had to restart a new Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/kornastoneuk - Although now lost your endless support, comments and 1000's of views over the last few months on our original page have been massively uplifting and encouraging – it has meant a lot to us and we have really appreciated it - so please re follow us at our new page as we start the journey again. At the end of the day it’s the music that counts – keep it real folk.
