I became a professional musician in the late 70's as a teenage graduate of the then musical revolution in London... Punk Rock.
My first group, The Vibrators, became popular with the public but unfortunately not the press. Two albums and numerous tours ensued to some critical acclaim so recording sessions and subsequent offers started coming in from various named artists/bands of that period.
An approach by boyhood heroes Roxy Music followed, with the Manifesto and Flesh and Blood albums/tours. By the onset of the 80's Roxy had it's first number one UK single 'Jealous Guy'.
A stint in Los Angeles was next, culminating in an album with US power pop band Code Blue.
On returning to London I was approached by Adam Ant, and realising his new 'vision' I gladly joined Adam and the Ants and became an ‘Ant’ . Hit records followed during the first half of the 80's.
