6 Did you play gigs with others?
It’s always been a pleasure to work in bands, learning from other musicians in a variety of venues – from the dodgy music bars to the great and glorious – including big festivals and sharing a stage with the likes of Bill Wyman’ s Rhythm Kings and fellow Scot’s born, Australian rock Singer Jimmy Barnes…

My boogie board and my guitar oh yes and my wife!

No, but having met many a Germans backpackers in my travels, I have had lots of invites to visit , and I am determined to go and knock on some doors.
