"Love is the answer, and you know that for sure" - John Lennon.

Background Information

Music has always been a major part of my life. My mother was (and still is, when health permits) an opera singer, she taught me to play the piano, and at age 15 I got my first guitar. I have played in bands regularly ever since then. 

My current band is called "neil", and is named after a character in the BBC TV comedy series "The Young Ones". The stories behind band names formed the basis of my first book, a music reference entitled ROCK FORMATIONS. I was inspired to first begin researching this fascinating topic by the band name Steely Dan (which I discovered was named after a steam-powered dildo!), and continued collecting and researching names for almost 10 years before finally publishing.

The major influences in my life have been (in alphabetical order except for the first entry):-

- Parents, family and friends

- Michael Crichton

- Eknath Easwaran

- Neil Finn

- CB Fry

- Jostein Gaarder

- W Timothy Gallwey

- Robert Johnson

- John Lennon

- Patrick Moore

- Muddy Waters

- Michael Murphy

- Nostradamus

- Dominic O'Brien

- Dan Poynter

- Daniel Quinn

- Socrates

- Frank Zappa.


Had works published in the diverse fields of engineering, music and sports.
