Milton got into the pop/rock phenomenon of the 60’s and teamed up with local guitarist Frank Dudley, they soon had a soul band called The Jump.

Cockney Rebel:
 Steve Harley and Milton played a few folk clubs with both on guitar. One night Milton played a piano and Steve was impressed. Milton went back to Uni to finish his degree. Milton kept in touch with Steve and was invited to join his new band Cockney Rebel in July 1973. They recorded the first album "Human Menagerie" and the first single "Sebastian" was released. It didn’t do much in the UK but got to No.1 in Holland and Belgium. They recorded a second Album "The Psychomodo" in early 1974 and released a second single "Judy Teen". Gradually a massive UK tour built up and Judy Teen started to rise up the charts. One appearance on Top of the Pops helped it get to No. 5 in the UK charts.

Be Bop Deluxe:
 Paul Jeffreys, bass player in Cockney Rebel and Milton joined Bill Nelson for a short while.


Paul and Milton then built up their own band called the Warm Jets. Meanwhile Milton was getting session work and did some gigs with The Leyton Buzzards, later becoming Modern Romance, the single of the same name was his last commercial release.

Bananarebel:
 In 2000 Milton decided to make an album based on ideas around animals. With help from session friends he released "Top Banana" as an independent CD.

Zoodiac: Milton finally found his own original voice. Milton loved working with linked musical keys and the modern computer generation of music production. Jeff Ellis was called in again for production and together with Nick Pynn (ex-Cockney Rebel musician) playing a wonderful selection of acoustic instruments. They created a new album based on the signs of the zodiac and again called on Bianca Kinnane for vocals along with French folk singer Gillian Cadier. The album was released in October 2010.
