Biography

I'm bald. I play drums. What's not to like? (probably lots!)

Been playing around 35 years on and off. Worked professionally in my early '20s after graduating from Musician's Institute (MI) in London but unfortunately ended up in software development not long after in order to make a decent living. Still there.

But drums (along with flying gliders) has been and always will be my primary interest. I gig with a Pink Floyd tribute band called 'Eclipse' and run a YouTube drumming channel called 'Stick To The Pocket' but don't keep it up-to-date enough at all. Apart from that, Wikiloops is my primary musical outlet and ongoing musical guide. I'm always striving to improve my playing and learn as much as I can. You're never too old or too experienced to learn new things from other musicians.

I'm also a former Staff Writer for the UK's Rhythm Magazine way back in the hazy days of the mid-nineties!

You might think all you do is 'give back' when you're experienced but I'm always learning here.

Instruments

- 8-Piece Yamaha 9000 (Recording Custom) all-birch kit in rare Cobalt Blue. Sizes are: 22x16, 18x16, 16x16, 14x12, 13x11, 12x10, 10x10, 8x8. All drums using Remo Ambassador coated heads
- Spaun four-piece all-maple kit. Sizes are: 22x18, 16x14, 12x8.

- Snares:
14x4.5 1964 Ludwig 400 Supraphonic (my default snare)
14x5 Yamaha 8000 mahogany
14x5 Handmade (by me!) Premier Birch/Eucalyptus XPK
13x3 Pearl Brass Piccolo

- Alesis SamplePad Pro (cheap Octapad copy!). Mostly used for doing the rototoms on 'Time'!

Tambourine, LP egg shaker, blue and red LP Jam Blocks and other assorted percussion

recording devices

- 2 x Shure SM57 for snare and a spare, sometimes bottom mic
- 2 x Audio-Technica AT-8118 gooseneck tom mics
- 2 x Audio-Technica AT-8030 condenser overheads
- 2 x Nordell Audio condensers for overheads / hi-hat
- 4 x Nordell Audio generic cardoids
- 1 x Nordell Audio Kick cardoid
- 3 x generic goosneck clip-on tom mics
- 1 x AKG D112 Kick mic

I appreciate this is way more kit than I need but I also deal with the live sound for my band so the gear lives with me.

- Tascam Model 24 mixing desk and 22-in recording interface
- Terratec 8-in Firewire interface (now secondary and only works with my Mac)
- 6-in compact mixer for occasions when the Model 24 isn't enough

- Dell desktop core i7 running Reaper and loads of plugins including Waves Gold suite v9 and Izotope
- 2015 MacBook Pro Retina running Reaper. Not used much as half my plugins won't work since moving to Catalina
- Enough cables to start my own bungee jumping company
- No neighbours
