Feet: Lead Guitarist, I started learning to play guitar back in 1970 when I was just 12. I used to Jam with KB when we were in our early twenties. I played with a few bands at school and after leaving school and occasionally as a stand-in bass player. Prefer writing and playing original music to doing other bands covers. I'm Interested in effects, gadgets, recording and sound technology.
