Yes - Stoke Newington
Born in Worcester, raised in Herefordshire.
Guinness, real ale, Corona beer, Spanish brandy, single malt whisky, Shiraz wine, any given amount really.
My mother boxing my ears when I was 4 after I had kicked both of my wellies off into a muddy stream (one after the other).
"Rory Gallagher" by Rory Gallagher - I didn't even have a record player at the time: I had to take it round to my mate's house to listen to it.
Apart from making a loud noise in public - building valve amps, walking, reading (history and crime fiction mostly).
Skid Row, with Phil Lynott & Gary Moore in 1971 - amazing/loud, and I couldn't get over the weird long coat/cardigan thing that Gary was wearing on stage.
Hanging dead chickens on a rack to go into a freezer at Sun Valley Poultry in Hereford.
At various times I have met and played the guitars of Rory Gallagher, Mick Green, Wilko Johnson, Zal Cleminson and Anson Funderburgh.
At various times I've played in country-rock, punk, rockabilly, soul and swing bands, but my first love is blues. I've been in Dr Blue and the Prescription for 11 years now.
Swing, Jazz, Cuban Son, Mexican/Spanish guitar.
See my answer to "Claim to fame" above. Have also supported Ruby Turner, Gary Moore and 9-Below-Zero. Also had the privilege to sit in with Hash Brown and The Browntones, at their jam at the "Bone" club in Dallas, along with Sam Myers on harp.
56 relic Strat:
Fender 63 Tremolux Amp and Cab:
Fender 5E3 Deluxe Combo:
38 years of fun and struggle. (I know, I know... Five words and two digits...)
Playing a 20 minute solo to "Hey Joe" on my own (whilst not sober) and not noticing that the rest of the band had walked off-stage and the audience were throwing lighted cigarettes at me.
Seeing my daughter Elspeth singing the soprano parts of Handel's Messiah alongside 3 professional singers.
Stevie Ray Vaughan at the Carnegie Hall, New York.
TV (with aerial and wood-fired generator).
You never stop learning.
I plead the fifth!
