I then bought an old Vox electric guitar and played with a few school mates in a band called “The Room”.
Somehow, I then slipped into the South London folk music scene (with the likes of Alex Campbell and Al Stewart) and played in a few folk clubs in my teens playing mostly my own stuff (plus a few Leonard Cohen and Dylan tracks) – I still busk a bit for charities such as Tearfund.
I turned from music to rugby in the mid 70’s and 80’s and that became my passion.
I met Paul in 1990 in Cromer and tried the bass guitar for the first time. Having supported a Christian rap artist in Wales (well the food and drink were free!), I was back into music. Last year, I heard that Paul and Chris were no longer playing in their regular bands very much, so I suggested we got together to play the kind of stuff we all enjoyed. It was great fun and a good laugh and after Tracey joined in too, the band was ready to hit the road.
Our January gig in 2006 at Northrepps saw the birth of CHIBBER.
