Colin Paul and the Persuaders
Well hello everyone.
For as long as I can remember I’ve had an ear for music and a built in natural rhythm. I found that out in school when the teacher gave the whole class recorders and we all had to learn jingle bells...I was the only one out of the class who learned it in two days of picking it up..
I was 13 when I started to play guitar. never had a lesson and all self taught. as a kid I was brought up listening to. Irish music, country, Elvis, Reggae, soul, buddy holly and the shadows. plus I was into Eric Clapton and rock music plus anything and everything on top of the pops. later on playing in a few blues bands.
I played gospel music and a bit of heavy rock.. I would learn tv ad music and pretty much everything I heard.. then in the early 90's I met Martin Davies, Tony Bolton and Brian Jones we instantly jelled and got a band together. we all had the same sense of humour.
