Tim was first captured by the draw of heavy rock back in 1977 at the age of 16, when a school friend persuaded him to listen to Deep Purple’s “Made in Japan”; and he hasn’t looked back since. He’s been a regular attendee at rock gigs since seeing Gillan at London’s Rainbow Theatre some 18 months later and still enjoys attending the summer festivals almost forty years on from his very first at Donnington back in 1980. Since those days his taste in rock music has broadened considerably and in particular, he now also enjoys the bluesy side of the genre as well as being a keen follower of many of the great new young bands that are starting to break through.
