Biography

Born in London, 1958; exported to Adelaide, Australia 1969 just in time to miss all the cool stuff happening in England, but young enough to remember bouncing up and down on his grandparents’ couch to Top of The Pops, especially when Status Quo appeared.

Returned to England 1987 to pursue a songwriting career. Failed, but at least picked up a degree in psychology…

Returned to Adelaide in 1999 and hasn’t touched a musical instrument since, although he *has* bought a cheap electric guitar, half a dozen plectrums and a DVD of how to play like Rick Parfitt, by Rick Parfitt… Be afraid, be VERY afraid.
