I used to be, but not any more. I live in Glasgow now.
Stockport, Greater Manchester.
By choice, Deuchars Bitter and 10 year-old Talisker. Otherwise I'm flexible.
The Lone Ranger on TV.
Travel, history, reading and films. Mainly most kinds of music.
I saw Johnny Kidd and The Pirates in 1963 at Stockport Essoldo. I think Manfred Mann was on the same bill. I sat there, wishing I was a bit older. That wouldn't happen now! The theatre was full of screaming girls, but I got out alright.
I trained as a waiter but could not keep my mouth shut. The customer never knows if he's wrong.
They all had it in FAME !
Not keen on dinner parties: I have trouble sitting still for to long.
40 years, on and off.
Several bands over the years. Most notable and long-lasting was Steve's Green Onions. I'm rehearsing with a new band at the moment (watch this space!).
It started with 50s Rock'n'Roll, which I still love. I learned about Blues through John Mayall and Fleetwood Mac. I then realised that I needed to listen to artists who inspired white players if I wanted to get to grips with the Blues and that holds true for me now.
I enjoy Soul, Southern Rock, Rock'n'Roll, Country, Celtic Fusion and some Jazz.
My favourites are the 3 Kings (Freddie, Albert and BB), Ray Charles, Buddy Guy, Otis Rush, Muddy Waters, Junior Wells and Etta James. I could carry on and bore you to death...
Sadly, none that I've mentioned but playing with Ray Bartrip was a joy.
...otherwise, I'd re-unite the Green Onions.
Check the Blues Jam videos! Bum notes bug me.
Feeling accepted as a player.
See my answer to the last question!.
The Allman Brothers at the Filmore West, 1971.
A joke, yes?
Yes - on oatcakes
A 4x4 to get around in.
You can always be surprised.
