Favourite food – good healthy home cooking
Favourite drink – pints and then some more pints
Favourite sport / club - Coventry city football club .. the famous sky blues
Do’s on tour - give it 100% . The full bollox
Don’t do on tour . Don’t lose that Fender Bass !!!
Favourite records . I prefer to look forward rather than back so my current favourites are new bands . Albums speed kills and mutts nuts by Chubby and the gang and retaliation by The Chisel .
Last record bought . The punk masterpiece ‘comfort to me ‘ by Amyl & the Sniffers
Favourite place to play live . Rebellion festival Blackpool . No better feeling than playing to your friends and peers
Favourite pub . I owned a bar/ music venue called Karns bar for 15 years . It will never be beaten
Spinal tap experience . This will happen on my first TMW tour with GBH … guaranteed !
Best festival . Rebellion … by miles
Describe yourself in one sentence . Passionate punk rock obsessive
Why this means war ? . I was lucky enough to catch their set at punk and disorderly Berlin . They blew me away and I thought they were a band of huge global potential , so when I got the phone call to join .. there was only one answer !
Cock sparrer vs sex pistols . RAMONES MAN !… seriously pistols although I am more likely to listen to a Sparrer record
Free beer for punks why ? … no , let them have Buckfast ‘ brewed by monks , drank by punks ‘
Favourite pinup star . Star ? Bob Odenkrirk ( better call Saul ) he is not my pinup though . Amy Taylor can have that dubious honour .
Famous last words – “ what happens if I press this button ? “
