Influences: I Enjoy All Bands, Singers, There Is No Favorites.
During my early years in Wellington NZ primary school in 1962, I taught basic guitar, drums, tambourine juggling and also to the intermediate pupils. moved to Palmerston North and done the same. I performed on stage school with my newly formed group, Benjamin James and the Arabian Nights singing country and western rock and roll, in later years turned Pirate, I formed a party band Johnny Cool and the vagabond Pirates of NZ and the South Seas which came to an end due to being an extra in 92 with Hercules, Xena and Jack of all trades. to this day I still teach basic guitar on the streets of Queen Auckland as a 66-year-old enjoying life to the max.
