FM (aka phonic a'moniker) has been doing music second time around these 9 years plus and is still kicking ass - just like the Stones. Started off with the T-set at the age of 17 playing at school in Newcastle doing Stones' covers. The Beatles, the Kinks and Dylan were other early influences. Now it's more Coldplay and Dido (and I have sung White Flag). Plans to do Stan (eminem) with a girl and I Kissed a Girl (Katy Perry) have not materialised - yet! Other hobbies include soccer, over 50 years involvement as player, coach, manager, match official, fan and local press contributor.
