(March 2020) I went for piano lessons at 13 years old costing two shillings and sixpence. I went for just a year because my parents could not afford the fee. Then, I started playing the accordion in my dad's dance band when I was 15 years old. I took over the band at 19 years old. There were no organs at the time.
When the Hammond organs came into the clubs, I had a bit of a bother getting the clubs to let me play there organ. But I persevered and played all over the north east for dancing that was going well back then.
I worked as a slaughterman for 20 years then an ambulance driver till I retired. But, I kept on playing out 4 to 6 nights a week.
My first keyboard was a Roland E 86. The next one was a Technics KN7000 followed by the Yamaha Tyros2. I now play the Tyros5 that I very much like.
