In 1966, I went to Liverpool to study electronic engineering at the university there. I joined a band with a bunch of other students and we started gigging around a bit. Adrian Henri was fronting an outfit called the Liverpool Scene and I was invited to join. It was originally a poetry and music band, but it gradually morphed into a rock & roll band with whiffs of jazz and blues. We originally were doing gigs locally, at the Cavern Club, O'Connors Tavern and the Everyman Theatre, but then, starting around 1968, we got into the burgeoning UK pub club circuit and became quite busy.  I then had to make a choice of being an electronics engineer or a bass player. For better or for worse, I chose the latter.
