According to Dunmow Broadcast, former IRON MAIDEN guitarist Dennis Stratton has thrown his support behind a new rock school in Saffron Walden, England.

Offering “music lessons with a big difference,” Livewire is open on Monday evenings at The Friends Meeting House in the High Street, teaching electric guitar, drums, bass and keyboards.

“This is a great opportunity for people to learn and play music with professional musicians,” said Stratton.

Every lesson finishes with a 15-minute jam session with all students joining in well known rock and pop songs.
