Hello and welcome to my website. So, what have I been up to recently? 

 I was in Los Angeles at the end of last year recording at Steve Ferrone's Drumroll Studio, with Steve, Phil Palmer and Pino Palladino. I like LA; the never ending sun is a big reason. Steve is another.

 I played a couple of shows at new year in Italy with DSL (Steve, Phil, Danny Cummings, Mel Collins, Mickey Feat, Primiano DiBiase, and Marco Caviglia) in a huge cave in Castellano on the 30th Dec (another first), and at midnight on New Years eve in the town square in Matera.

Home for a couple of weeks then gigs in Milan and Luxembourg at the end of May, then a break in Spain followed by some shows in Germany with David Knopfler 

For the past few months, I've been traveling back and forth to Rome, recording and producing, with Phil Palmer, a record of original songs for our band LEGACY, in Forward Studios which is half an hour outside of Rome in the Frascati region.

 The first single from the record, Jesus Street, which I wrote, is available now on iTunes etc in Brazil and will become available worldwide on May 26. You can hear it on my MUSIC page.

While in the UK, I've been working on other projects in my studio, including a couple of tv commercials and writing and recording a song with Jamie Squire from The 1975. In March, I played two shows with the DSL band, one in Rome, the other in Lugano, Switzerland, came home for a week then went back to Rome to do more work on the record. As you can see, the pace at the studio was hellish.

When home, I have a lot of fun on this:

It's a Scott E-ASpect CX 710, it has an electric engine and hydraulic disk brakes, it goes like stink and it's an absolute hoot. My association with Scott goes back to the early 90's when they first set up in the UK, and every bike I've owned thereafter has been a Scott. Great bikes, nice people. 

 

And I've also been having fun in this little beauty.

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in a broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow, what a ride’”
— Hunter S. Thompson
