Biography:

Lucky to be a kid of the Sixties, energy, optmism, fashion, music revolution, Dad bought my first kit a second hand Ajax (£40) what a buzz! Our band "St James Infirmary" transport an ex- ambulance!  First gig, Young Liberals summer party, typical Sixties experience, candles in wine bottles, Joss sticks, mini skirts, British Pop - American Soul, exhilaration of playing and people dancing to our music! I loved Soul music "Stax' important lessons learnt how to feel the beat and hold it down.

Along came the British Blues Revolution, Clapton, Peter Green, John Mayall, Hendrix, more lovely music to absorb and our new name "Blue Condition" . More gigs bigger venues supporting "Chicken Shack" Bath Pavilion, "Matthews Southern Comfort" Winter Gardens, Weston Super Mare, awesome!

Living in Bath we could venture off to play a few unofficial festivals a hippie site overlooking the "Vale of Avalon" (Glastonbury) and "Stonehenge: playing until dawn of the Summer Solstice. (Pictures on the photo page).
Music evolution Seventies and Eighties, fusions of Latin, Jazz, Funk, Rock, demanding performances with power and energy. By now the band was a three piece named Bronz, we focused on the physical and technical challenges, gigs included, Ronnie Scotts and Marquee, I had now found "music heaven", loved finding levels of Intensity and inspiration, since then my drum kits have been designed for this style and purpose.
