Since I was a small child, music has occupied a prominent spot in my life. As a teenager, I had spots in other places as well, but that is of little importance. I started on piano at five years old, suffering the abuse heaped on me by a certain Miss Gray who failed to understand my inability to master the scale of Bb Major and my indifference to certain classical masterpieces. By the age of nine, I had taught myself the sinful boogie-woogie and, under the influence of a Mr E Presley gravitated to guitar.
In later years, I became incompetent on flute, dreadful on fiddle and totally abominable on a few other instruments.
Over the years, I have worked with almost every kind of band imaginable, from skiffle and pop to classical and even church music. I have had the great privilege of playing the organ in Norwich Cathedral.
The music business in Essex is brilliant and I am proud to have a considerable circle of friends whose talent never ceases to amaze me. Check us out on Facebook under "The Coverband Collective"
My current band is a fast moving sixties tribute band RPM 45
My latest book book (Out of Thin Air) has several musical stories. I bet you can't wait!
Please buy the books and please also book the band. I need the money.
