This is me – my alter ego. I took lessons in classical guitar from the age of 11. In truth I didn’t want to be Segovia I wanted to be Hank Marvin! Hence it took me 7 years to reach Grade 5 as I spent most of my time strumming rather than plucking!
From then on it was bands all the way and I’ve been in one continuously since. I had a brief sabbatical during which I accompanied an award winning choir (we played in the Albert Hall you know) but for the rest of the time it’s been rock and pop.
Spot the Dog is a three-piece blues rock band. We play a lot of material from the 70s and 80s because we’re all that sort of age. However, we do occasionally stray into the 21st century. Tracks by bands such as the Killers, the Foo Fighters and the Kaiser Chiefs find their way in with the likes of Thin Lizzy, Bad Company, Free, The Eagles, Tom Petty, Joe Jackson and many more.
Most of our gigs are in pubs and the occasional beer festival. You can find us on Facebook to see if we’re coming to a town near you!
