MY MUSICAL BACKGROUND
I have been playing keyboards extensively since the age of
I am now er... well...somewhat...older... er born 1958
.... you work it out!
I obtained a band "A" 'O' level in music and can therefore read with reasonable dexterity.
I have played in many, many bands over the last 30 years. Examples
being, David Bowie tribute band, general MOR function bands, rock
bands, classic rock bands and various duos/trios.
My general style is that of a keyboardist/synthesist. Although I am not primarily a
piano player; I am a competent player. I am a very strong lead solo player. However, I play
different sounds; eg orchestral/organ etc. ; and parts with each hand, and work to fill out the
overall sound, rather than clash with the bass player's/guitar player's parts.
favorite Band/Artist is without exception, Rick Wakeman; who of course was the keyboard player for the 70's progressive
rock band Yes. Other music tastes include fusion and progressive rock
such as Stanley Clarke, Pat Matheny, Al Di Meola, Santana, Genesis,
Camel, Caravan. On the lighter side, Blondie, Slade, Sweet, Fleetwood
Mac, Bob Marley, ABBA, Spandau Ballet, David Bowie, Roxy Music, are all
