Zak Starkey's RUMORED work with:

""|  summary  |  releases  |  live  |

According to a few Samantha Fox resources, including one of those quicky-published, mostly pictures biography paperback books from the 80's, these first few Sam Fox recordings featured her 'high school band' that was to have included "Ringo's son". The info has always been here with a disclaimer about the info needing to be confirmed.

Well ... According to Zak (Jan '03), he DOES NOT appear on these SFX tracks. He says that he "may" have played on a few demos for the producer, that Sam may or may not have recorded later, but he is not on the SFX releases.  [Hey Zak - the quote from Modern Drummer July 1987 says "Zak worked with Samantha Fox (British centerfold celebrity having a go at pop stardom)"] ... Mike Hurst - you out there? Any info you can add?

S.F.X. on Lamborghini

Prior to Samantha Fox's 1986 commercial success with Touch Me, she released two singles in England on the Lamborghini label, with what has been described as "her high-school band" - S.F.X.
which Zak says he DOES NOT appear on contrary to info on various Sam Fox online FAQ's.
