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.
John Walker has sent me some demos of TEN FEET FIVE tracks from the 1960s
You can hear them here TEN FEET FIVE
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.
