In the 1970s I use to go see a variety of prog rock and heavy metal bands. Uriah Heap being a favourite of mind. Then I was lucky enough to see many of the pub/punk bands such as Stiff Little Things, Kilburn and the High Road, The Jam, Tom Robinson but my all time great was Ian Dury and the Blocheads. Norman Watt-Roy on bass laying down those funky lines for Ian Dury and Blockheads to build upon.
What gear do you use?
I have an old short scale hofner but my working bass is made by Yamaha. At moment I am using Ashdown head and 4x12 speaker with a Behringer pre-amp. I also have a Trace Elliot combo plus a Warwick pratcice amp I use for small intimate gigs.
Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
I use to listen to David Bowie's bass player Herbie Flowers, Jack Bruce, Stanley Clarke and Roger Taylor of Queen.
Are you in a band? Have you been in bands?
I have played in many bands in the Dorset area. Starting in a 70s cover band then moved on to Big Band Jazz along with the trad Jazz as well as many other styles including punk and blue grass.
What's the biggest audience you ever performed to? What's the smallest?
My biggest event was a 1000+ people for the International Lions conference in the Bournemouth internationl conference centre. My best gigs have been playing for Lupes Fest in Weymouth with Graham Dee and Terry Stannard.
