    Man of leisure due to illness these days.

    In a former life I was a full time solo pro singer and guitarist for 13 years but gave it up in 1980 to spend more time with my wife and young family.
    Never attempted to pick up a guitar after I retired until just recently as I didn't want to be tempted to go back on the road, which back then meant up to 40 weeks per year on the road living out of a suitcase whilst touring which didn't leave much time for home and family life.

    I did miss the lifestyle and money of course but there are more things in life than just money and possessions...by the time I was 22 I'd bought my first two houses outright and that was my initial goal...security for my family and myself.

    Now that I have finally got back into playing, I have to say that I'm in some ways enjoying it more than in my pro days as there's no pressure but I'm lacking that drive which pushed me to learn new material back then and which I need to recover.

    I love the Gretsch I bought recently and can't seem to put it down now that I've set it up!
