I was born on 23rd March 1954 by Two Dales near Matlock in Derbyshire, UK. I was brought up in a pub called The Horse Shoe. I ain't superstitious but the song "Born under a Bad Sign" springs to mind. I was sent away to boarding school in Gt Crosby, Liverpoool at the beginning of the Beatles reign in 1963 and left of my own accord in 1970 after the Beatles split.
I left Matlock in 1973 aged nineteen as a bass player in a band (formerly The Doughnut Band) and moved to Coventry. Top Coventry bands I played in were as bassist in "Hot Snacks" & keyboards in "The Ring", not forgetting "Doc Mustard & the Cobalt Kids" as the Doc himself. My first single 'Nuclear Boogie was playlisted by Radio Caroline in 1984. In 1990 I travelled to London to receive a songwriting award from the Nordoff/Robbins Musician Style national music competition. I left Coventry in 1991 and headed for Cornwall, UK.I write songs which are naturally based on my experiences and perception of life. I've got a video deejaying show called 'WASTED PLANET' where I get to project classy live performances from mainly guitar guru bands.
