At around 19 he goes back to guitar, swaps all his gear for his first Vox AC30 (a 1963 Bass) at 'Red's' in Falmouth and borrows enough money to buy a Hondo Pro II guitar, an Ibanez TS808 Tube Screamer and joins a Reggae band in Truro. He never looked back.

He's played Reggae with The Sons of Albion, all sorts of Blues with Animal House and The Blues Boys and a mix of covers with This Way Up over the years
