ABOUT

Joined rock band in mid 1980s at Uni. (T-pau, Blondie - style). Played variety of gigs mixing bass, rhythm and lead guitar and some keyboard/synth playing. Recorded tapes/CD in recording studios. Band kept going until 1998 when members moved too far apart to rehearse. Then family commitments took over.. Now looking to get back into it and form a new band initially rehearsing once a week and gigging as opportunities come up. Into music technology and studio recording. Would like to play a mix of covers (both old and new) and new material.
