You may not recognise the face but Paul Butler is a rock star twice over. As a member of Neuro and ID he’s seen it all – tours with Phil Lynott, wild nights out with INXS, to say nothing of hit records and torrid spells in the wilderness. After packing several life-times into a few decades, he’s now at the helm of a new band Propeller Palms. In his first major interview in nearly 20 years the Waterford veteran talks about his roller-coaster career, and its attendant triumphs and heartaches.
“I think I represent the spirit of survival,” declares Paul Butler, the charmingly enigmatic frontman of hotly-tipped new Waterford outfit Propeller Palms. “I have a way of living. I don’t believe in the past, but I learn from it. I always have to accept the now, but I’m always looking forward to the future with positivity. I rarely think negatively.”
Propeller Palms will launch All In This Together in the Grand Social, Dublin, on February 16.
