I passed an audition as a Drummer for The Nomads who had advertised in the London newspaper's Music Section of The Newsshopper(circulation 200,000+) in 1984. Then formed The Blues Brothers with Matt Bone - guitar/vocals(who I still say was the best Paul Rodgers & Paul Kossoff rolled into one on the English Bromley Blues Rock scene). Me & The Blues Brothers Engineer Darren Bacon went to Knebworth to see Deep Purple, which later I wrote 'Purple Battle'(Rock Variations) about the Mk2 reunion, (like Deep Purple 's 'Smoke On The Water' members who went to the Frank Zappa & The Mothers concert that burnt down, with their Engineer Funky Claude). Then I formed the Highway Stars(who used Peppermint Place Recording Studios in Beckenham) & Gunfleet(who played in the new grunge Kent scene) And included recording 2 Demo albums worth of material in the 80's. The local Musicians also got a front page on the NewsShopper in 1986, with the Bromley Unemployment Group being given £23,000 budget for helping over 10,000 people unemployed in Bromley including musicians like me. But that's only about £2.30 each approx !
I started to contribute to Darker Than Blue Music Magazine(1984-2008/British Libraries)
And I passed an Audition for 2 album artist Phil Allen/Cornerstone in 1990's as a singer, he'd had a singer Dave Murray who'd left and recorded a solo album.
Cornerstone "Seriously rocks" - Karl Allison, Cross Rhythms magazine. "I have known James for over 15 years and respect him" - Hugh Osgood, Cornerstone Production Services Limited. They were a company from 1995 to 2008.
I also worked for a London Radio Station during the 90's. And joined FCW Writers group in 1990's, reading out my poetry & listening to other writers including Janice Fixter, who also went on to publish her own work and work in Radio.
But by the late 90's I got unwell from Septecemia, a blood disease, and had to go to hospital.
During the 21st Century I contributed to 'More Black than Purple' Music Magazine(ISSN-1478-2499). The magazine ran from 1996 to 2012.
I rejoined the Guild Of International Songwriters & Composers in 2003. Originally 1995. And in 2005 I met Actor Kevin Sorbo(Hercules The Legendary Journeys/Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda).
I've had a relationship with Actress Tia Carrere since 2005, proposing marriage in 2012, when she had divorced, we are Friends on Facebook.
2011, I started writing 'Rock Variations' Registered the Lyrics, and photographed Stonehenge in October for my Art Rock Album. I had also started my association with GAK Music Shop, Brighton(I bought my Gretch Drum Kit from them, still given a plug on my website. And BT Music Hastings). The writing sessions took place on the Carlisle Pub Function Room Stage during 2012. And Recording started in Consett, England, up to January 2013. By the end of the year in December a New Musical Express ad. was placed. And a further ad. in January, two in February, then one in September 2014.
