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 have now been running a few years and still coming across old friends and new ones too. I welcome any stories, photos etc from you.

Toby Turner, Bruce’s son, e mailed me a few weeks ago. I was delighted to hear from him, as nobody seemed to know where Bruce had gone. Toby gave me his number and I was able to ring him and we had a long chat. He told me that after he left ‘The Loot’, he and his partner went as a duo playing clubs and cruise ships. In 2000 he gave up gigging and now runs a courier business in Manchester.

Me and Colin


During research for the new film of ‘Wild Thing’ we managed to locate Colin Fretcher; ‘The Troggs’ Musical Director and ocarina player on ‘Wild Thing’.

He now lives in Weston-Super-Mare and plays keyboard in a jazz band called the ‘Dark Town Strutters’.

We arranged to meet him for lunch at Nunney near Frome and learnt the background of how he first heard Chip Taylor’s version of ‘Wild Thing’.  He told us that after we had finished our recording of it, he had to run down the street to buy an ocarina, an instrument he’d never played before.  He then had to tape up all but three of the holes to play the famous solo.
