+title: Biography
+---
+_This biography has been written by John himself, but by his son, who started_
+_writing this shortly after he had found old tapes in the loft._
+
+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_”.
+We only did covers. <say more about the style>
+
+I practiced there until 1976, when the group split up because of musical
+disagreements <schisms?>: a part of the group, including me, wanted to
+continue the covers, and the other part did not. We formed a group named
+“_Mantis_”, and used to play at biker's clubs and in jams.
+
+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].
+
+[...]
+
+I started going in the [Duxford Workshop][duxwks], where you could turn up
+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:
+that's how “_Charlotte's Party_” started. I did the guitars. We also played
+on TV with that group:
+
+{% youtube s-UC411IPJQ %}
+
+[...]
+
+From 1990 to <1992?>, with Laurent <???>, we had a group named
+“_Jazz Ripples_”. <what's the style exactly, and why??>
+
+[...]
+
+In May 1993, I moved to France with my wife — we weren't married until
+seven years later — to live in Paris. I had a few guitar lessons
+with a very talented guitarist named <???>.
+
+In 1997, we bought a flat in Ris-Orangis, and I started going in
+Grigny's conservatoire <???>. In 1998, with people I met there,
+we formed a group named “Tordus Ninjazz”, and we played until around 2000.
+Our last concert was at the “Fête des vins” <???>.
+
+We moved to Brunoy in 2003, and continued doing concerts with my group
+until 2004~2005. <???>
+
+[...]
+
+I started playing with [Smiles Davis][smdvis] in November 2015.
