I was asked a few days ago if, should the right time and place arise, would I wear leather to a wedding? Well I can tell you, it’s arisen thrice already! Well twice… The third involved latex! Both events were in 2009, the first I wore leather jeans with a leather jacket… Adam, a friend,Continue reading “Leather to a wedding?”
Google reminded me that I was on tour with Manning doing two gigs over in the Netherlands and Belgium. So many good memories, although just after this amazing tour was the beginning of the end for me. Manning started to fall apart after this tour. Chris and Kev left; Steve the flute player quit toContinue reading “6 years ago.”

Steve D shows us how he learns his parts for the Manning songs.

Yes it was hard work – after all Charlestown is 35 minutes long and ClocksContinue reading “The studio moles…”
