I had my first introduction to music as a kid when Dad showed me a couple of cords on the Banjo- still got it. Took Piano and Violin lessons in school and even got a skiffle group together playing Lonny Doniagan songs and other Trad & Jazz goodies. When I turned 14 I got my first guitar – I think it was a Wem or Vox copy of a strat’. At 15 I joined my first band. A definite take-off of The Shadows (ya’ know! Cliff Richards band).
