I have been playing around with guitars from the age of about eight years old. My influences then were The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. Since then I have been in a number of semi-pro bands. The first of which was a band called Watt. I played lead guitar and my brother Frank played guitar and sang vocals. We played in the London area, and had a regular once a week gig at a pub called the White Lion in Putney for a number of months.
When I moved to Folkestone, I set up a band called Snooker, at which time I switched to playing the bass guitar. The band was later joined by Henry McCulloch (ex Joe Cockers Grease band and Paul McCartney's Wings).
On moving to Swindon I was invited to play for a band called The Fat Cat Blues band. Later we changed the name to JumpWagon ( as in jumping on the band wagon), and play mainly original R&B material. I have been with this band now for about 4 years, and we have gigged extensively in the SW area. We have just brought out a CD. Which has taken about two years in the making. If you would like a copy, please drop me a line.
My other musical influences are:- The Who, Yes, Neil Young, Todd Rundgren, Stanley Clark and many more.......
