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 studio with Steve, Phil Palmer and Pino Palladino. I like LA; the never ending sun is a big reason. That said, it rained while I was there, for only the second time in 2016 and I hear LA has already had record-beating rains in 2017.

 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. 

Yes, it was cold.

Yes, it was cold.

I'm back in the UK, at the moment, where I've worked on another TV ad and played a session for someone's  record, and now I'm chilling and focusing on my next gig, which is next week in Brazil with DSL.

04/05- Sao Paulo
05/05- Porto Alegre
06/05- Florianópolis
10/05-  Curitiba
11/05-   Vitoria
12/05-  Salvador
13/05-  Recife

All roads lead to Rome.

For the past few months, I've been traveling back and forth recording - I'm producing a record of original songs with Phil Palmer, for our band LEGACY -  in the amazing Forward Studios which is half an hour outside of Rome in the Frascati region, When in the UK, I've been working in my studio, which has included writing and recording with Jamie Squire from The 1975In 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 was hellish.

 

 

 

On the subject of Donald Trump, I'm with Mel Brooks: he's hilarious and we have 4 years of hilarity ahead of us. I've written a song about him. It doesn't praise him, largely because he's a stupid twat.

 

 

While at home, I've been having 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 here I am riding it...

 

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’”
