Hi! I'm a 4, 5, 8 and 12-string bassist (and also a guitarist) from Bolton, Lancashire. My taste in music is melodic classic rock, glam rock, power-pop. I like to play the kind of stuff that people know. Good time music. While it is certainly true that, yes, I AM on a bit of a mission to civilise, I want to entertain people, not educate them.

I have been in a few great little rock bands that I have been quite proud of, and have played a couple of thousand shows with over the last 40 years, or so, including The Kerbcrawlers, Rising Force, Bad Habits, Stranded, The Roadrunners, Mother's Ruin, plus The Peppermint Dream. I happily sing and play bass with The THREE. I also served periods of time in a couple of other, lesser, bands that turned out to be quite dodgy, despite my best efforts to humanize and improve them musically, which I prefer to forget about, some of which were awfully bad mistakes that I should forever apologise for them. My friends will know which ones. I have really sinned badly in my time and I'm truly sorry.
