I was born in Singapore. I was the youngest of four children, sister Martha who was adopted from an orphanage before I was born is the eldest, then brother James (Jim), then sister Patsy then me. My Father was a Doctor (Gynaecologist) and he delivered me at our home address. My mother was a nurse when she met my dad. When I came to England, I went to a boarding school in Spinkhill near Sheffield, but after a bout of Rheumatic fever, I went to a school in Potters Bar Hertfordshire called Mount Grace. I started being a musician from the age of 16 and eventually took up playing Pedal Steel guitar which is my choice of instrument to this very day. As a musician, I have played UK, most of mainland Europe including Switzerland, and a 6 months tour of the States with an Amercan band.
