Gary was born at an early age into a musical Family, growing up surrounded by 50s/60s rock'n'roll, country (and western), pop, rock, orchestral, and good old northern brass band music - which goes some way to explaining the eclectic tastes and inFluences today.
He started learning music at the age oF 6, and was soon playing in kids brass bands and youth orchestras. At 11 he discovered guitars when his Dad asked him to play bass with a group oF Friends, but two years later he 'discovered' Eddie Van Halen and switched to six strings, never looking back since.
Now based in Leeds, Gary has played in numerous projects and bands over the years in diFFerent genres and styles, covering britpop and indie in the 90s (supported by the Kaiser ChieFs - don't judge), metal in the naughties, and prog in the last 10-15 years - notably being a Founding member oF This Winter Machine and being heavily involved in the writing oF, and playing on, their award-winning album 'The Man Who Never Was'.
Gary's inFluences, aside From his Dad and EVH, are all called Steve: Vai, Rothery, Hackett, Harris, Wilson and Hogarth. Now that'd be a helluva band.
