No particuar date, I had a six string for a Xmas present when I was 10, lapsed and had various instruments over the years, in 2002 I had a MLC , started playing and took lessons ! Switched to 4 string CBG's in 2011.
What was the first concert you ever went to?
Saw various pub bands including Stray and the Groundhogs in 1970, many many big names since then including Led Zep 1975 at Earl's Court and Queen1975 Hammy Odeon.
What gear do you use?
I first learnt on a Strat, I now build my own 3 and 4 string guitars, they are each special in their own way.
Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
Many influences, early Rock'n'Roll, The Beatles, Stones, local band The Who, Led Zep, Genesis and Deep Purple were foremost, read a lot of music papers and compared records and saw bands with friends.
Are you in a band? Have you been in bands?
Never been in a band - they would soon get p*****d off with me telling them what to do! Strictly solo for now anyway, though would love a drumming spot in a local band.
If you could jam with anyone, who would it be?
Mike Snowden - big influence in my playing at first, we like the same stuff.
What's the biggest audience you ever performed to? What's the smallest?
Nothing much to compare with at this stage, my first live experiences were small pub crowds, it was like jumping in at the deep end and struggling to keep afloat!
You're stuck on a desert island and only get to bring one album with you. What do you pick?
Impossible to answer! no one album covers it, though Sgt.Pepper and Led Zeppelin 1 could be contenders, never tire of hearing 'em!
