Welcome

to my little corner of the internet.

Hey there and thanks for checking out my site. The purpose of this website is to try and give the reader an insight into a little of the life and times, I was involved in.

From my mid-teens onwards most if not all of my spare time, that is the time I was not at work was taken up in the pursuit of becoming a pop star. All I ever wanted to do was to play and entertain by emulating the popular music of the time and to a large degree that is what I did and still continue to do today.

I had no desire to be a blues, heavy rock or punk aficionado but just to play what the general public liked at any given time.

My claim to fame was that I was persistent patient and quick to learn.
