Rich once had a date with a biker chick called Laverne, who was most disappointed when she found out he wasn't actually Ronnie James Dio. Rich often entertains unsuspecting guests by reciting the full scripts to Full Metal Jacket and Pulp Fiction.
Rich has been playing guitar for over 100 years, but still has most of his hair. He was brought up in Birmingham in the 1970's, aspiring to follow in the footsteps of the great guitarists of that era, such as Tony Iommi and Richie Blackmore. Rich learned his playing skills from the late, great Gypie Mayo of Dr Feelgood and The Yardbirds fame. He also studied classical sitar in Benares, North India, taught by the legendary guruji Dr Rajban Singh. Since then he has eaten curry at least five times a week and plays really weird scales. Rich has played in some "legendary" bands such as 'The Acid Squirrels', 'Charity Shop', 'The Unconditional Future', 'Krisis' and currently plays in freakbeat rock band 'Psychedrive'. Rich's main interests are dark chocolate, red wine and origami.
Chris first picked up the classical guitar at the age of 9 but ditched it immediately when he discovered the electric guitar was way cooler and way louder. He later took up vocals once he realised how much he liked the sound of his own voice. His falsetto screams have been known to shatter windows and encourage bats back into the neighbourhood. Chris currently performs lead vocals in metal tribute band 'Metalhead', channelling some of the greatest singers of rock history, such as Bruce Dickinson and Phil Anselmo. He also sings in original metal bands 'Endeavour' and 'One Machine' where he imitates Taz (the Tasmanian Devil). Since his teens, Chris has played guitar in a ton of rock and metal bands and has picked up music production techniques through the many projects he has recorded. Chris has contributed exam material to Rockschool's guitar, bass and vocal grades and has taught vocal workshops at Bath Spa University.
Jonny holds the world record for playing the most screaming pinch harmonics at a wedding gig. Jonny's well spoken demeanour and radical hairdo had us pretty convinced we were hiring the real-life Sideshow Bob.
Jonny works as an international criminal mastermind in between guitar lessons. He has written for Total Guitar and Guitar Techniques magazines and has taught at the International Guitar Festivals in Bath, London, Newcastle, and Cheltenham, as well as for the music colleges BIMM and Access to Music.
Jonny played guitar on the album Redux:Europe by Kee Marcello of Europe, which peaked at #9 on the Swedish album chart. As well as touring all over Europe, he has also performed on BBC and ITV.
After leaving home, George missed the family’s Red Setter so much he modelled his hairstyle to replicate its Pre Raphaelite-esque ears.
George has been playing guitar for as long as he can remember and can’t really remember doing anything else, on account of being struck by lightning whilst raising his guitar high to the rock gods at his first gig. His first guitar teacher, Mick Jaques of The Skatalites and Curved Air, helped mould him into a versatile player with a wide range of musical interests, from the cosiest of Jazz to the most parent-disapproving of Hardcore Punk. Whilst playing an Argos Catalogue’s worth of gigs, tours and festivals, George has still found time to build a secret underground lair where he experiments with music production, bass guitar, piano and hardware synthesisers. Fancying a change from the world of punk and hardcore, George currently plays for a indie-pop band called Sun Spot.
