4. First Album you bought ?
Small Faces - The Autumn Stone Steve Marriott is my favourite singer ever. Yes he had a great performing presence and thankfully there are videos to prove it on You Tube, and the music still sounds fresh

5. Last album you listened to ?
Toto live at Gempel

I don't think I'll make any money out of it, mind. ;) I was jesting....it's just a bunch of instrumental songs that, with glorious hindsight, are pretty poor! All my stuff for music is in storage for now, so there won't be a MW II album just yet

7. What instrument would you like to learn ?
Would like to have a go at drums and/or bass guitar

Born in 66, got into music from 72 onwards. Schools Out by Alice Cooper was the first single I bought with my own money.

First live gig was a a Canadian three piece metal band called a Triumph at Birmingham Odeon in 1980, it would have been Zeppelin at Knebworth in 79 but I got chicken pox 4 days before the gig and my mum wouldn’t let me go.

Last gig was Half Man Half Biscuit at a Shepherd’s Bush Empire about 4 years ago.

First album I remember buying with my hard earned paper round money was Rainbow Rising. I always got lp’s for birthday and Christmas.

Last album I listened to was Crackle by Bauhaus, had a bit of a goth moment at work as I was writing menus this morning.

I play the guitar badly

I would love to learn to play blues guitar.

1. What music era did you grow up with ?
Born 1974, but didn't get into music until my mid to late teens, so I consider myself from the 90's era.

2. First live Music concert you attended ?
Pixies, Dublin, June 1991

3. Last music concert you attended ?
Pixies, Dublin, Sep 2019 - I go to other bands, honestly :D

4. First Album you bought ?
Bought a few dodgy ones before I was into music, so will discount those. First I actually wanted and bought was The Cure, Standing on a Beach.

5. Last album you listened to ?
Sadly don't listen to albums much anymore. Don't have the time. I just stick the ipod on shuffle.
Last one in it's entirety was probably James, 'The Night Before'. A great mini album brought out in conjunction with beautiful 'The Morning After', which sadly brings my mood down as most of the songs remind me of my late brother.

6. Do you play any instruments ?
No, but tried unsuccessfully to learn the guitar a few times over the years.

7. What instrument would you like to learn ?
Love the bass, but would also like any from guitar, drums or piano.
