Personal Quote:

We were only getting $50 a week when we started touring so I didn't want to get into debt paying for TVs. There are lots of great rock bands who have never thrown a TV through a window. It's not a prerequisite. I've always been more into the music than the groupies, drugs or smashing up hotel rooms. See more »


Formed a side band with members of The Quireboys to form the Down 'N' Outz. They play and record songs by Mott The Hoople. See more »
