A Heart Beat

With Valentine’s day on the horizon, the wonderful Miki bought this overgrown boy the perfect toy as a Valentine’s gift – An electronic drumpad set that fits snugly into my studio and interfaces with my sound modules, allowing me to play “live” beats onto my songs. This is so great for me, not only because it allows me much greater freedom when recording, but also because I started my musical career on the drums at the tender age of 8.

The Family Business-Part Two

So I was hunting around the other day for a newspaper clipping of myself and Graham Oliver for my other blog when I came across a photo of me at the tender age of seventeen.

I’d just got a job working in an office at a power station, and was gigging most nights. I’d been a drummer since the age of eight, and this shot was taken for the Electricity Company magazine, just a year before I turned to Bass guitar and made it my career.

Note the hand-illustrated bass drum skin!

But what’s really scary is this next picture. My son, aged fifteen, in this shot occupying the drumstool of Simon Kay, Christie’s drummer. “History Never Repeats” sang Split Enz….I’m afraid I have to respectfully disagree….

It seems appropriate as “Parents and Children” draws to a close, that I fly to the UK tomorrow for two shows, and to spend all day Saturday with him, chilling out and eating things that are undoubtedly bad for us.
