SEEKINGBand to Join, Acoustic Guitar, Background Singer, Bass Guitar, Drums, Keyboard, Lead Guitar, Rhythm Guitar, Vocalist.
I am 60 years old & have played guitar with a number of local bands in the Fordingbridge, Downton & Salisbury areas - including '3PM', 'Brian Moon & The Satellites', 'The Satellites', 'Just Us'. I also played with the Hampshire Police Rock 'N' Roll Band 'Nightshift' when I was a member of the force. I am of average ability. I'm no shredder, I'm not the best and I am not the worst. I have no ego and I just enjoy the chance to play. I can certainly play to club standard. I have a number of high quality guitars and good amplification & effects. I also have a high quality recording studio at my home in Rockbourne where I have produced a large number of recordings and albums for local musicians, and work is in progress at the moment on several projects. I have over 850 recordings on Soundcloud under my username of Buzzard Records Uk, produced by the studio. This is also my record label. If any one is interested in getting together to form a band or to just song write and record, or even to pop in for a coffee and biscuits & reminisce about the old days, get in touch.

The Visitor Year: 2014 Genre: Folk
This is an original song written by two local musicians, and tells the true story of a ship called 'The Visitor' which struck rocks of Robin Hood Bay, Yorkshire in 1881, and the efforts made by the local people and the lifeboat to save the crew in appalling weather conditions. I feature on lead guitar on the middle solo and my son Andrew plays the solo on the outro. A very atmospheric recording, recorded at my studio. Vocals by Joe Thorne. Composed by Joe Thorne & Chris Theobald © 2014. The recording is the property of Buzzard Records UK.

My Best Friend's Girl
My Best Friend's Girl Year: 1998 Album: Other Peoples Greatest Hits Genre: Cover/Tribute
This is a cover recording of the Cars classic song 'My Best Friends Girl' by the band Nightshift, for which I played lead guitar. I had never heard the original song before and just played what the previous guitarist played. Had I heard the original I would have definitely played it differently as our version really bears no relation, but saying that, this song always got the girls up on the dance floor - it's that beat! Recorded in 1998 at a studio in Ringwood, Hampshire.
