I write music but leave the live performances to the 'youngins' these days as they have more "N.R.G." and enjoy humping gear on and off stage.

I started playing guitar in 1973. Then began playing keyboards and toured with a couple of small bands in the 80's (Didn't we all?). Wrote, contributed to, and performed mostly our own material, with the odd cover thrown in here and there, for good measure.

I had to quit playing guitar recently after breaking one of my fingers.

Who would I like to meet?
Every girl I ever kissed and meant it.
(...And every girl I should have!)
Why this name?
Because I like red skwirrells more than I like the letter "q".
Do you play live?
Not nowadays.

Used to play in and around London and Southern England.

Special Moments:
Blowing a bank of eight pyro's at "The Marquee" in London, while our manager was faithfully promising the Chief of the London Fire Brigade at the back of the hall that we no longer used pyro's.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It means we have more tools at our disposal and gives us an immediate and more intimate access to our audience.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Yes, if I get to sleep with even more beautiful women and continue living as a lazy, fat, old, git.

1970's:- "Uncle Herbert"
