The Big Bad Dread and the Bald Head

Music has always been one of my passions. I am involved in the band The Big Bad Dread and the Bald Head our 7 piece band; where I play bass guitar; alongside Richie Richardson on Rhythm Guitar; Bankers, the lead singer; Jason, on drums; Dave's our keyboard player; Murphy on percussion and Bugs is our lead guitarist. We have been playing as a professional band since 2002 though I always used to fool around with the guitar even during my playing days.

Some of my favourite reggae artistes are: Peter Tosh, Bob Marley, Bunny Wailer, Beres Hammond, Lucky Dube and Culture, a reggae band that was a part of the vibrant, Jamaican reggae scene in the late '70s. So it's not surprising that the flavour of our music is reggae first and foremost.

When we play live we try to make it a type of road-show, and everyone - fans and the members of the band really enjoy it. Actually enjoying is not really the word, I'm absolutely loving the music business. It has always been one of my passions and I see myself now as a musician.

I was a fast bowler, I'm now a musician
