"I Wasn't Born Yesterday" - Part 2
At the age of 23 and on the verge of landing a major record deal I had a serious car accident, badly damaging my left hand - leaving me unable to pick up a guitar again and stripping me of the chance to do what I loved. I was devastated.
10 years on and I’d bought a Harley Davidson, spending the next 15 years driving with a heavy clutch through fifty sets of London traffic lights a day. That might not sound like fun, but over time I felt my hand coming back to life - and finally, a full 30 years on from the accident I could play again!
I can only use 3 fingers, but that’s enough to express myself and play the music I should have been playing 30 years ago!
I have finally released my first solo album, “Love, Death and Everything Inbetween”, clips of which you can see in the video. The sound has been described as blues rock and some tracks compared to that of Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, Jack White, Beck and Lou Reed.
Aside from the music I am an award winning film maker - and have merged the two disciplines to create a fired up Blues Rock show where I play solo in front of six video screens. It's called the, "Band In A Box", solo tour and I am currently available for bookings.
