I was born in 1966 in Epsom. FAMILY
'My Mum and Dad were listening to James Last and stuff like that so I didnĺt get much influence from them. I got to about 14 and realised that I enjoyed dancing ş I started listening to early soul stuff, Motown, that kind of thing. I actually got into a bit of rock when I was 15. That was my brotherĺs influence really ş his room was next to mine and I had to listen to it every day. I wasnĺt into school really. I wasnĺt really very good at school but I went. I was better at art and crafts than the academic stuff.
