I was born in Bournemouth, England and grew up in Southend-on-Sea. I got my first drum kit in 1968 and turned pro at the age of 19 in 1970. I played all over Europe at U.S.O. clubs for the troops on R&R from the Vietnam War.In 1971 I joined a band called Silverhead. We toured the world from 1972-74, including the US and Japan. We played at all the big arena’s supporting Uriah Heep, Nazareth and Deep Purple. In 1974 and I became a session drummer for MCA UK and also freelanced. I worked with Murray Head, The Detriot Emeralds, tv commercials and jingles. In 1976 I joined the David Byron Band. I joined Ken Hensley’s Shotgun in 1981. 1983-86 I was with Pete Haycock’s Climax. In 1986 I started my long association with Robin Trower. In 1993, Robert Plant called me to do Fate of Nations. In 2004, I was working with Robin Trower again and am still at it. I am also working on original material. I have uploaded a few demos, I hope you like them.
