MySpace site complete with recent music
Before my sixteen year stint as longest serving keyboard player with TULL I had the good fortune to tour and record with a curious mixture of folks including Eric Burdon, Leo Sayer, Sniff 'n' The Tears and a whole host of other names that will mean nothing to anyone! I even played keyboards on a Saturday night television show every week, backing up media celebrities popular at the time. I was usually made to dress up in a silly costume.
I was once asked to play the piano for Sammy Davis Junior - what a nice little school that was.
In 1991 I met and recorded with TULL at Dave Pegg's studio for the making of Catfish Rising and shortly afterwards was asked to tour with the band in Europe. As we waited in the airport for our luggage at the end of the tour Ian Anderson asked me if I would like to become permanent keyboard player, and the rest as they say, is history. I have been lucky enough to have visited many wonderful countries with the band and can say, "Nice Pair" in six languages including sign.
I have made many great friends and if I met you on the road I hope I was polite!
In 2006 my activities with TULL became less involved, and contrary to any rumours there were no fallings-out or firings. After sixteen years of working closely together, people can decide to move in different directions as several band members have done in the past. I returned to the stage for the IA Orchestral tour of America in late 2006.
Lately I have been writing music for film and most recently for
