I began to play the guitar at an early age when inspired by hearing Manitas De Plata on the radio. I eventually discovered the blues and gigged in London at venues like Ronnie Scotts with John Mayall, John McVie and George Melly.
As a young lead guitarist I jammed/played with many of the R&B and rock legends of our time, including Rory Gallagher, Jimmy Paige, Ginger Baker, the late Paul Kossof, Captain Beefheart, Dick Stubbs (Juicy Lucy), Linda Lewis (Ferris Wheel), Dave Davies (The Kinks), Roy Wood (Wizard), Mickey Finn (T-Rex), Mark Knopfler, Led Zeppelin, Peter Green, Jeff Beck. Most unforgettably with the great blues legend Bukka White. More recently Noel Redding (Jimi Hendrix Experience) and John Coughlan (Status Quo).
Major influences include Jimi Hendrix, John McLaughlin, and Carlos Santana.
