1988

  • Turned down a band contract for The Liberty, we were arrogant and thought we were better than the offer.

1986

1985

  • Got a job in a guitar shop as a guitar technician and shop assistant. Enjoyed getting to know all the local musicians and hearing the local gossip, and jammin away.
  • Decided to go into the 6th Form of school to study A Levels, (post 16 is not compulsory in UK), lasted 2.5 days and decided that I’d rather get a job and make some money, so I did.

1983

  • A piano arrived in the house and I started some piano lessons with smiling Eunice, she was very well endowed which kept my young teenage interest levels in the piano and theory of music high!
  • Uncle Tony (Jumbo pilot and Founder of DX Owners club) dropped off a Yamaha CX5 which meant it was game over for anything other than music as a career for me.

1970s

  • I picked up Dad’s guitar (he was in a skiffle group) and learnt “House of The Rising Sun”. Following this the flood gates opened to learning more chords, listening to his large record collection.
