Place of birth: Liverpool
Place of residence: Herne Bay, Kent
Earliest musical memories / influences: The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, The Kinks and Bob Dylan
Favourite artists / bands: David Bowie, Eagles
The best single ever recorded: Bohemian Rhapsody. There has never been anything else like it
The best album ever recorded: That's a difficult one, I have lots of favourites from lots of different genres, I don't think I could name just one.
Best live concert ever attended: Status Quo at Northampton town's cricket club in the early 70's, such a small venue, all up close and personal, no lighting rigs or special effects, not even a sound engineer, just the four of them playing straight through their amps.
Equipment used: My main instrument now is a customised Fender Precision bass which I normally play through a Peavy amp.
I also have a short scale Fender Jaguar bass, an acoustic bass and an Ibanez upright fretless bass.
Past bands and musical ventures: In the past I have played in a number of bands including The Piranha Brothers, Trigger's Broom, The Jack and Danny Band and Purple Patch. All of which were mostly covers bands playing in clubs and pubs mostly in North West Kent, Essex and London. More recently I have played with Cooper's Brother and The Touched who were both playing original music.
What made you join the Crow wagon: I think that the word 'Old' in the title made me think I might fit in. But seriously, quite simply I like the music and enjoy playing it !
Your visions, ambitions and expectations for The Old Country Crows: I am just looking forward to getting out there and playing.
Your favourite moment as a Crow: A bit early to say as yet but hopefully there will be plenty to choose from.
The Crow song you wake up in the middle of the night singing: The one that springs to mind is 'Last Train', it has such a catchy chorus.
