As a heavy
metal bass player, I've played for
artists such as Bruce Dickinson, Eric Martin and Ricky Gervais as
well as bands such as Sack Trick, Tank, Atom Seed, Monument and many
I also work as a guitar and bass technician for artists such as Go West, Mr Big, Tony
Hadley, Glenn Hughes, Therapy?, Kim Wilde and Armored Saint.
As a writer on the subject of my experience of the music
industry and related topics, I've written for MetalTalk, For Bass Players Only and the
award winning documentary Scream For Me Sarajevo. More recently I
published on Amazon, 'Inside the Skunkworks Machine', the full
story of Bruce Dickinson's most ,mysterious musical project.
As a military historian, I specialise in the study of the armed forces
of the German colonies in Africa and Asia prior to the First World
War. I have been published in English and German on the topic online
and in print for Osprey Men at Arms and Zeitschrift für Heereskunde.
More recently I published on Amazon two books on the
Traditions of the Imperial German Infantry and Cavalry Regiments.
