Born 3-August-53 te Levenwich, Scottland. When his dad dies he moved with his mother and his first guitar to Edinburgh (at the age of 9).
He plays guitar still and mostly with a cap. Besides that he likes to motocycle.
One of his first bands was Pilot, they're working on a new album (spring 2002)! Then he became a member of The Alan Parsons Project.
He was one of my first guitar-hero's.
