We are the Roadcrew Podcast Episode 17 – Listen Here!

I seem to be always apologising here but yet again, existence is a busy game to master when you spent most of your life avoiding it in a touring bubble.

Just a quick update in terms of the book. I took most of the start of this year off from writing as I enrolled in a History Masters, got a new job and was moving gaff. It just seemed to be a bit too much of an overload to doing all these plus the book at the same time.

That said, I have set myself the goal of having the book ready by the end of the year.

In the meantime, last month I was stoked to speak to the chaps at We Are The Roadcrew Podcast about my early days as well as my time with Lemmy & Motorhead. For me, it was a real honour to be part of a series with such industry legends.

If you wanted to treat your ears, take a listen below and don’t forget to give them a link on Facebook here.

Cheers ears, and stay lucky!
