About Me

Hi Lived in Preston Lancs most of my life ,started playing drums when i was 15 took them to a couple of gigs  on the bus!!! Never got into the group scene as i became a club drummer playing 3 or 4 nights a week with organist backing all kinds of acts so you learned all styles from shows to pop to rock,i had a few lessons with Dave Hunt who i consider as one of Prestons best[he's still playing if anyone remembers him from The Piper nightclub] but sadly i had developed too many bad habits and wasn't prepared to practise[fool],in  the 80's i joined The Shades Of Blue .a long established cabaret band on the workingmens circuit and we changed the name to Midnight Blue as we tried our hand at a touch of comedy with some sucess,as is the way we drifted apart due to " musical differences". I stopped playing then till about 2005 ,yeah long break!! when i joined a local rock band called Wrecked .it didn' last long as some members did it full time so my eldest son took up sticks and though he had never played before took to it well and is now playing in a sucessfull band called Vankwish[ correct spelling]. I last played a couple of songs at a charity gig with Stan ex Dennis Delight and Phil Baker for a well known in Preston's old music scene Dave Harris who has since passed away from motor neurone disease,thats about it up to pres ,my drums are 41 this year and i'm lazily waiting the right band to find me so i can get going again at 64!!! Bye for now.
