Lets talk about music!!

When I was a teenager, I was part of a rock band in London, we used to play GIGS at pubs, we did all our REHEARSAL at a small studio in Putney.

I played the Bass guitar. I got into playing the Bass guitar because I had spear time at school, so I enrolled in music class and started playing ACOUSTIC guitar, were I meet my best friend Serif.

My love for rock music was already there, at that time young people were very influenced by the different types of music: Rock, Pop, Punk, New Wave, Disco Music, Ska and New Romantics.

I was and I am a rocker, so me and my BFF started a girls rock band, we were 5: a DRUMMER, LEAD GUITAR and BACK UP VOCALS, RYTHM GUITAR and LEAD SINGER and finally me on the BASS GUITAR.
