It was in a suburb of Melbourne, Australia Called Glenroy in early 1983 .Picture the scene A young teenager who enjoyed playing the guitar for fun, who had studied some classical guitar at school.
I was given a record from a local charity shop. That record was From the Bluesbreakers led by John Mayal with Eric Clapton, commonly called the Beano album.
Having not much to do, this young teenager started listening to the album in question and his blood ran cold. The sound of the Blues affected him physically, emotionally and much more.
A Melbourne guitar teacher called Greg Franklin guided him on a pathway that led to a lifetime love affair with electric, acoustic and folk blues, not to mention jazz, reggae and the guitar in general.
30 years later, after many twists and turns, ups and downs, good times and bad times, many many bands and live gigs, the love affair with the guitar still goes on ...and will go on as long as i am alive !
Many years later after being resident in the Benelux for 15 years or so the journey is just about ready to start a new chapter
