In between - I did ok at school, then dropped out, hung around with punks and hippies for a few years, joined a punk band (The Assassins) as 2nd guitarist, progressed through various line up and name changes until I found myself as lead singer and lead guitarist of a band called Swine. In the meantime I got a job (aarrgggh!), I ran the art dept of a sign company for years. Finally I stopped playing in bands in my mid 20's, and ended up leaving my job in my early 30's... to become.. a van driver!
I love driving. Life is about being happy, more than having lots of money.. I see that now (feel free to give me money though!).
