I was born in 1960 in Duxford, near Cambridge, in Great Britain.
-I started learning the guitar when I was 13, in 1973. I told Roy Beard,
-a friend of mine, I was playing the guitar, and he invited me to play in
-the group he was running at the time, “_Silver Zodiac_”.

+
+In 1976 (on January, 24th), the group split up because our opinions had
+diverged: one part of the group, including me and Roy, wanted to write our
+own songs, while the other part did not. We formed another group, named
+“_Mantis_”, composed of Roy on vocals, Roger Pierce and me on guitars,

In 1978, a friend of mine, Dave Brown, introduced me to Mick Venning, who
-used to manage a band called “_Hazard_”. Mick was mainly interested in
-the studio-side, recording and organizing concerts. I stayed in the band
-until 1981, when the band played in the [Cambridge Corn Exchange][cornex].

-and learn to play an instrument for free, in <1980???>. At the time, it was
-run by <???> Steinberg. I used to give lessons there, and played as well.
-I even played [Gravy Train's Tolpuddle Episode][tolpud] once, half on
-cassette, half live. I also met a lot of talented musicians there, such as
-Laurent <???> and Matthew Steinberg.

In 1984, we had a two days party at Matthew Steinberg's, playing music:
