Introduction From TimeSpace&Drums


Junior Member
Hi drummers and less evolved people, (well we have to fight back don't we - light bulbs indeed - Steve Gadd never changed a light bulb in his life),
Hope things are well. I just thought I would quickly introduce myself in this forum as I am new here and have never really been much for idle chat... we drummers like to get things done, but you knew that already didn't you. It’s getting those guitarists away from the bar that’s the problem.

Anyway, a bit about me. I call myself a drummer but I am actually just a pretender at present. I don’t even have a kit, I switched to electronic some years ago after I had a bad car accident as the noise began to really bug me. No, it wasn’t the drums that were bugged, they were just miked. oh no I am so bad, it’s a good job I spent 35 years at the back of the stage cos I wouldn’t be able to make it up front.

I was saying, ah, but then I had to sell even the electronic kit as the neighbours just wouldn’t shut up. Neighbours are so noise but you most likely knew that too.

And so, I was working with Susan Maughan, the woman who did Bobbies Girl in the 60s, and people like Paul Daniels and Les Dennis etc, on the cabaret scene. I did a lot of UK tours and Pantomimes Shows etc as I preferred the reading gigs to the whole rock star thing. But that was most likely because I was never offered work in the band scene. You know the type that get deals. Original bands and so on. I was too busy chasing the reading gigs down.

Since I got rid of my kit some years ago I have been writing books and developing websites etc and maybe one day will be ready to publish those, but I actually plan to get myself a drum kit and create some videos to go with the books , that is if I can still play.

And so that’s me. Not that impressive for 35 years playing but hey I am just a beginner.

So anyway hope your well and hope we get to chat over the coming weeks, months and years. I am still busy so will need to schedule time when I visit but I am usually around.

All the best.
