Biografia

I'm bald. I play drums. What's not to like? (probably lots!)

Been playing around 35 years on and off. Worked professionally in my early '20s after graduating from Musician's Institute (PIT) in London but ended up in software development not long after in order to make a livable wage. Still there. Thanks to the marvels of home working, I got to the age of 48 and ditched my home country of the UK and moved to gorgeous Andalucia in Southern Spain. Mostly because I adore the Mediterranean culture and lifestyle but also because of my disgust with Brexit which provided the final push for me to move on. I never thought I'd live to be ashamed of my [blue] British passport but hey. This country is just so beautiful and I don't think I'll ever leave. Moving to Spain has also helped me achieve two dreams I always had: affording to own a house that has a swimming pool (they're like having central heating here!) and a having a dedicated recording studio, the latter being the pinnacle of everything I ever wanted.

Anyway... Drums have always been and always will be my primary interest. I'm always striving to improve my playing and learn as much as I can. You're never too old or too experienced to learn new things from other musicians.

You might think all you do is 'give back' when you're experienced but I'm always learning here from players of all abilities. There's many places out there like Wikiloops but none of them have the camaraderie of this place - an oasis of working and playing together for the sheer hell of it no matter where you come from, and in this increasingly polarised world, it's so welcome. The pure joy of unjudged music and creativity where who you are or where you're from just doesn't matter.

Strumenti

- 8-Piece Yamaha 9000 (Recording Custom) all-birch kit in oddly-rare but awesome Cobalt Blue. Sizes are: 22x16, 18x16, 16x16, 14x12, 13x11, 12x10, 10x10, 8x8, all mounted on a three-section Yamaha Hexrack II. Owned the kit since new 30 years ago. All drums using Remo Emperor coated heads
- Spaun four-piece all-maple kit with Gibraltar hardware as small gig/practice/second kit. Sizes are: 22x18, 16x14, 12x8.

- Snares:
14x4.5 1964 Ludwig 400 Supraphonic (my main snare)
14x5 Yamaha 8000 mahogany in Cobalt Blue (second snare in large kit setup)
14x5 Handmade (at the factory by me!) Premier Birch/Eucalyptus XPK
13x3 Pearl Brass Piccolo

6", 8", 10" Thomann Rototoms

Millenium 850 drum brain, various triggers. Which I don't ever use...

Tambourine, LP egg shaker, blue and red LP Jam Blocks and other assorted percussion for when I want to look like I know what I'm doing.
