• Timing is Everything

This memoir is an honest account of my life, from my distant childhood days growing up in the Curragh Camp through to the whirlwind of my music career. My aim is to describe how things looked from my perspective behind the drum kit over the last forty plus years. There was a lot of luck along the way. Some near misses, downright disasters and plenty of fun too.This was written on an iPad with the index finger of my right hand as it's the only finger that doesn't have a "Whole Lotta Shaking Going On"; I have been battling with Parkinson's for most of the last decade. From humble beginnings in an Army Camp to some of the biggest stages in the world-it's been one hell of a trip!
