Colin Owen aged 14This is me at around 14 playing a Framus semi acoustic (boy I wish I had it now!) bass. The shot was taken in Matt’s shed. He was our singer at the time and decked his shed out to look like the Cavern…Well, he thought it did. If you look closely you’ll see I’m playing it with a drum stick.

Note too, mum’s knitted pullover. Mum was big on knitting, so pullovers came thick and fast…Especially thick!

I started playing (giging) when I was 13, playing guitar in the local workingmens club. I remember, we had 2 Selmer ‘little giants’ amplifiers. Maybe 3 watts through a 5 inch speaker. And yep, they told us to turn down!

Love and blessing,
