Rob Dickinson

Rob Dickinson (born July 23, 1965) is a guitarist, singer, and songwriter previously of the band Catherine Wheel. He is now a solo artist. Dickinson was raised in Norfolk, England, and is the cousin of Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson.

While a member of Catherine Wheel from 1990 to 2000, Dickinson proved himself as a talented songwriter and soulful vocalist. However, after the 2000 release of Catherine Wheel's last album, "Wishville", the group disbanded with little fanfare.

Dickinson leads a relatively private life and little is known about his activities in the years following Catherine Wheel's breakup. In recent interviews he confirmed that he designs custom automobiles, a known pursuit of Dickinson's prior to his musical career.

Dickinson contributed vocals to two tracks on the Jimmy Chamberlin Complex album, "Life Begins Again", which was released in January 2005. Dickinson returned to the music scene in September 2005 with the release of his debut solo album, "Fresh Wine for the Horses". The album includes tracks written by Dickinson while a member of Catherine Wheel, as well as newer material. The release was supported by a tour of small venues across the United States and Canada, where Dickinson performed intimate acoustic sets comprised of both Catherine Wheel and solo material.

In February 2006, Rob discussed his new solo record and his career with Catherine Wheel in an insightful interview with [http://www.auralgasms.com/Features/RobD/default.aspx Auralgasms.com] prior to his solo set in Ferndale, Michigan.

At the invitation of Marty Willson-Piper of The Church, Dickinson toured the USA with The Church during July and August 2006, opening each show and joining the band on stage for two encores.

On June 10, 2008, Fresh Wine for the Horses was released by Universal/Fontana with the new song "The End of the World" and a bonus disc, "Nude" which features Rob's intimate re-workings of six Catherine Wheel tunes including "Black Metallic" and "Crank".
