Biography

Once upon a time in a leafy suburb of the United Kingdom a ten year old boy was sitting on his father’s rocking chair, rocking to and fro to the sounds of rock ‘n’ roll, on this piece of furniture that housed a record player, a Gramaphone I believe they call it.

Anyways this 10 year old boy was hooked on music and started to make up his own lyrics to the songs he would hear. For his birthday that year he received a thing called a turntable that had this long arm on it and you could stack some records on, they would drop one by one and play in turn, amazing creation that got this boy hooked on various sounds from his parents record collection, from Glenn Miller to Squeeze, Status Quo to Marvin Gaye and Elvis Presley.

Also for this boys birthday he received a hand made guitar his mother bought him from Spain and armed with a book by Burt Weedon the boy began to strum his first chords. For his next birthday, I guess that was a year later, he received a Casio keyboard and began to play along to some of his favourite songs.

It was clear this boy was hooked on music and on hearing him sing along to the records of that day, his parents decided to enrol their son in the church choir. Once he was a fully fledged choir boy what would be his first appearance became his last, all the family turned out so proud of him and watched this young boy walk down the aisle in his flowing gown.
