I’m a musician, writer and film-maker. I’ve produced and directed a lot of TV, produced two albums, worked as a journalist on The Times and currently writing my first novel.

I don’t know if it counts for much, but I’ve had rats running across my feet in an Indian leper colony, swam in a volcano, been bugged by MI5 (allegedly), threatened with a machete, got drunk with Normandy Vets and played piano with Brian Wilson and Paul McCartney in their homes.

In short, I’ve been around a bit. Maybe too much. Hope you enjoy these accounts of my exploits.
