ABOUT

I returned seriously to the guitar in 2015 after taking early retirement. Previously I'd been lead guitar in moderately successful semi-pro outfits since the age of 14/15, playing blues and rock in the very late ‘60s and through the ‘70s until career and family/mortgage took over. In my teens and 20s I played hundreds of gigs, often supporting 'name' bands and at top venues. Now, I want to make up for the lost years, music-wise. Blues/rock (classic) is my music of choice. I'm itching to get back to playing live gigs again. I'm not interested in ego trips… I define myself simply as a guitarist. I have a soft spot for two guitars complementing each other: and if a keys man comes into the mix then better still. I live in Bletchley, near Milton Keynes. While I can hold a tune, I tend to leave the singing to others.
