      Was a folk/country rock band in a tiny pub. The Sticklebacks, all pro musicians so a great run of gigs. Eagles, Neil Young, The Band, etc.

        Cool. Who else have you played with? And who have the pro cats jammed with?

          Both the bass player and lead guitarist have played with Chris Rea and Paul Rogers at one time, among many others. I’ve done some stuff with some function bands and pub groups, but also done some work with one of the ex bass players from 60’s band Freddie and the dreamers, aswell as the Hammond organist, Gerry Richardson, who was in Sting’s first band, Last Exit.

                    Awesome. I thought you were pretty young and that's a great thing. Do you ever get the " who's this kid!? " look from other musicians? Or does your reputation proceed you in most circles?

                      I've had it in the past, more from audiences than from fellow musicians. I'm glad to have the reputation that I have, I owe it to my teacher (Grandad ) who was and still is a pro session drummer.

                        Good on you. Most drummers I knew were only interested in playing (or trying to play) Tool at that age and only wanted to be in metal or prog bands.

                          I remember the first time someone wasn't impressed by my age. That's what let me know I was getting old, and I was only 28 playing with a group all 45+!

                            Actually, what's wrong with that? Playing Metal or Prog is very challenging. I'm 63 years old and I wish I could play some of that stuff!

                              Absolutely nothing! I was one of them, ha! It's just nice to see more variety among teenaged drummers than I'm accustomed to.
