Hi and welcome
The reason for setting up this site is twofold, Firstly, to tell you about the bands and artists I have played over the years and secondly to let people hear some of my songs.
Another reason is quite poignant as just before Christmas 2011 I suffered TGA (Transient Global Amnesia). My wife rushed me to hospital at 1.30am where it was decided I would stay for tests. On arriving home at 3.30am she wandered into my office/recording studio and thought, "What will I do with all his songs?"
Hence, when I recovered she insisted I should get them all on-line.
I hope you enjoy my story, photos and songs and the tracks of Karen-Ana, who has one of the loveliest voices I have ever heard , I have also published a new song.
Here it is: created with the help of Opkar Hans on guitar and keyboard, 'My Woman Of The Night' just click below to take a listen
We are well over a year old now and still coming across old friends and new ones too. I welcome any stories, photos etc from you.
Some old newspaper cuttings have emerged which can be found on the 10Feet5 page
My 70th fantastic surprise party - I had been led to believe that my wife was taking me out for a quiet meal, and the real celebration would be a week later. So, when I arrived at the venue, I was totally overwhelmed to find all my family, friends and old band mates had come together to welcome me and had orchestrated some real musical entertainment. A Troggs medley, a superb duo and then, the real party piece I was 'encouraged' to join in. It was a wonderful experience and it's great to have such talented musicians amongst my friends. I know it's a night I'll always remember.
