WHEN AND HOW I BECAME A WURZEL: In 1981 I was working with the BBC in Clifton as a session musician and it was looking as if work was going to run out. I had heard that the Wurzels were looking for a drummer - so I contacted their management and ended up as their drummer.

FAVOURITE 3 SONGS FOR DESERT ISLAND DISCS:

1. 'Waltz for Debbie' (Bill Evans)
2. 'Fifty Ways to leave your lover' (Paul Simon with a great drum intro by Steve Gadd!)
3. 'The Planets Suite' (Gustav Holtz)
