There’s a woman with a mouth the size of Plymouth having a domestic outside the library in front of an (to her) unseen audience. Ah…….Lanarkshire the land of the free………………big gobs.

I was born and raised in Scotland and started playing and reading music from the age of eight simply because my father was a musician, a self-taught clarinet and saxophone player. He also taught himself to read and write music. Bye the time I was twelve I was singing more than playing my guitar, no I did not go the route of the wind instruments. I became a good rhythm guitarist but my forte was definitely singing it just came so naturally, besides, I couldn’t play lead guitar to save my life. I also taught myself to read music and learned all the chords and inversions on my guitar and started to sing with bands and then as a solo singer. I went to engineering college and started an apprenticeship with a mining engineering company (my father also worked in engineering, like father, like son as they say). The company had a branch in South Africa, east of Johannesburg and they wanted experienced people to go out there to fix some problems they were having with the hydraulics. I applied and went on a two year plan, but I fell in love with Africa and stayed there for more than half of my life. I always had a story or a novel in my head and at one point started to write it down but my recording career took off and I became a recording, TV and radio star, so the book had to take a back seat. I have made half a dozen albums including a Christmas album which I hope to release in the UK soon. I have composed a lot of my own work which is on vinyl and CD. I played a venue where they had artists like Frank Sinatra, Rod Stewart, Elton John, The Osmonds to name a few and I met them all bar Frank. Now I have realised my ambition and dream of writing a book, not only one but two books and I’m working on the third. The first book has been published through Amazon.com with the second coming soon. When I start to write it just seems to flow, the story keeps developing as I go along and I love it. I love the challenge of writing my imagination down, the challenge of publishing, however, is another story but I shall prevail.
