Zagreb, Croatia
I had a great time recently in Zagreb where I did a Masterclass and helped judge the Master 2010 guitar competition. I also played at Boogaloo as a guest of Ivan Mihaljevic and his band the 'side effects' - they were great! - there is a video here:- check it out! Hopefully, I will be visiting again Croatia before too long. For now though - very big thanks to Igor Polack from for doing such great promotion and also for looking after me so well:-).....

New, New, News!
First of all I must offer you all an apology for the long delay in updating any of the site (apart from the gigs section of course!). The reason for this is that I was left in the lurch by my previous Webmaster and have had to find the time to get someone else to take over! Anyway, looking back at the news for 2009 there is a lot missing – It was a very busy year indeed. The highlights for me were playing at the Iridium Club, in Times Square, New York as a guest of the Legendary Les Paul – (I was actually the last European that he ever played with), The London International Guitar Show where I played with Nicko McBrain, Steve Vai, Mazz Murray and the rest of the old PHBand. The ‘Champions Of Rock’ tour of Sweden in October was also a great success as were the shows in Italy with Doogie White, Neil Murray, Ian Paice, Neil Otupacca and later on with the fabulous Fairport Convention chaps. There were a few albums that I played on – John Denners ‘Is This Thing On’ - “Ivan Mihaljevic’s ‘Destination Unknown’ & of course the double live ‘Champions Of Rock’ album… Hopefully I will now be able to post news up-dates more regularly!
