The Hertfordshire Hillbilly was raised on his parents huge record collection, with a Drummer for a brother and a sister who could play “pretty much anything!”. “My parents would drag me to smoky bars and clubs to see bands and I fell in love with guitar.”
Playing in bands from the age of 12, Chris went on to start a covers band (Final Demand) with his father on bass, his brother on drums and two family friends and would regularly play 2-3 nights a week on the pub and club circuit in and around London. During this time Final Demand played a festival...along with a certain 'other band'… “I was 15 and a guy I worked with at the guitar shop was in the 'other band' which had just finished recording a single, so I stuck around at the festival and fell in love with that band” - That band was of course Medicine Hat.
After touring the world with Thai superstar Sek Loso, Chris returned home to marry and start a family. “I had just got home and had decided I want to start a band for me that was the two things I love: Country and Rock, that’s when I saw an advert for a band wanting a Guitarist - I knew it was the band for me!”
Chris loves: Convoy, Dukes of Hazard, Smokey and the Bandit and Telecasters…. Oh yeah, and his Wife and two Daughters!
