  • When did you start to play?

 

Very late in life, about 2003 I think, I'm a self taught musician, I heard a friend of mine play Mother on an acoustic and it blew me away, I knew then I had to play guitar, so Mother was the first song I learnt to play and haven't looked back since!

  • What is your favourite track to play?

To be honest I enjoy them all, there is just one track I don't like, and that's Dogs of War!

  • Who are your influences?

Apart from Pink Floyd; ELO, Cream, The Who, Stones, Beatles... the list goes on & on. Whilst growing up in the 60's - 70's, my elder brother used to bring home some great music, it was in 1973 when I first heard Dark Side Of the Moon and that was it for me, I was hooked!
