The cousin of Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson and, much more importantly, the guitar-playing frontman of Catherine Wheel, Rob Dickinson went solo a few years after his band, after five albums, made the decision to stop. Released on Sanctuary, the label operated by Catherine Wheel manager Merck Mercuriadis, Fresh Wine for the Horses was issued in 2005 but slipped out of print once the label went out of the new-release business. Thanks to some nudging from Bob Ezrin, who had worked with Catherine Wheel on 1997's Adam and Eve, Sanctuary parent Universal put it back into circulation. An updated version was released in June 2008, featuring a different sequence and a new song, "The End of the World," as well as a second disc containing solo versions of six Catherine Wheel favorites (including "Black Metallic," "I Want to Touch You," and "Crank"). ~ Andy Kellman
