How the DVD came about:
Jim's only professional solo gig took place at The Robin 2 in Bilston on 16 November 2002. The gig was called 'Jim Jam'.
The gig was recorded for sound only - it was not professionally filmed.
Since the event Jim has been on the look-out for good quality footage filmed by fans. However none of the footage he found was of good enough standard. However, earlier this year fan Mark Smith from Mansfield gave Jim his good quality footage.
Mark says: "I sneaked my top of the range camcorder (Panasonic MX5) into the gig - got a great position - and filmed most of it. After the event I probably played my recording back around six times. I realised my filming was good. I actually thought to myself 'I'm going to hold on to this and save it in case a special project comes along". I therefore resisted uploading any of the footage to YouTube or social media - and I never actually showed it to anybody apart from myself. Then when I heard on the grapevine that Jim was looking for quality 'JimJam' footage I took the opportunity to get my tape to him - via his brother Frank.
After Jim played the video footage to his wife Louise and daughter Bonnie, and saw their positive reaction to the footage, Jim decided to release it on DVD. The DVD will include Jim's commentary on how the 'JimJam' event came about, his memories of the day and the reasons why he chose to play certain songs. The DVD is very much a souvenir of Jim's only ever live gig - and is very much for the fans.

'For One Night Only' DVD has it's official release on Wienerworld on 23rd October 2017

Note: Unfortunately due to Jim's illness he will be unable to perform musically at this event!


We are pleased to announce that in conjunction with Jim's 'For One Night Only' DVD showing / Q&A event at The Robin 2 in Bilston on Sunday 5th November - that fans will have a unique opportunity to spend time with Jim's famous John Birch bass guitar!
The John Birch bass was Jim's main onstage instrument from the late 1970's through all the years he played with Slade. It is one of the most famous bass guitars in rock history and Jim played it at Slade's massive festival gigs at Reading in 1980 and at The Monsters of Rock Festival in Donington Park in 1981

In return for allowing fans to spend time with his famous bass guitar - Jim will ask fans to support his nominated charities of Cancer Research UK and Dementia UK.
Fans will be able to slip the bass guitar strap over their heads, run their fingers up the fret, pluck a string and strike some poses for some photos (before giving it back)!
