ABOUT

I have been playing in bands for 30 years, mostly semi-pro but also full time pro for a few years (have a regular day job now to pay the family bills-less stress!) I play both guitar and bass, but mostly play bass these days as I love laying down a heavy bottom end for the band.

I like all styles of music, but tend towards more energetic/heavier stuff. Prefer originals but really enjoy covers as well.
