Growing up, we played lots of football, cricket, road and table tennis with the others in the neighborhood (sometimes barefooted), but music was our talent. So, from very early we started a family band which played mostly at the church and Revival Meetings in the Park, but soon we were gigging at a Live Saturday morning radio station called ‘Children’s Party’. Then we started playing with other groups.
At my school there was always music, whether it was Ian Alleyne or Michael Welch with guitars slung over their shoulders or Hallam Clarke playing the piano in the assembly hall before the school bell rang. End of term concerts by the ‘old boys’ (students who had left Foundation just a few years prior) with dueling drummers Andy Weekes and John Tiny’ Harrison. I knew that music was going to be my profession.
