Got myself smashed up on an old BSA bike while heading back to Sydney.  Drunk driver put me into a tree, lotsa blood & guts & gore so I was told, anyway Iím still riding now, so what the hell!!
Current Occupation: Been a lot of things over the years but my last jobs were scaffolding and Iíve been a disc jockey for over 30 years.  I'm most currently retired




Wow, now ya got me, I kicked around with a few bands for a while then I met a guy who was a DJ.  Went to one of his shows and he let me do a set.  The rest is pretty much tied up there.  Iíve worked mainly up and down the coast in Qld, only cause its great riding weather.

Been married and divorced a couple of times and my present 2ic and I are separated, God hates me, lol.  Got three kids, all growed up and run away from home, maybe God doesnít hate me after all.

Iím in Townsville at the moment, been here for a while, got the house and all the animals ya can poke a stick at so I just take one day at a time.  Iím a near cripple and cant walk to far without my cane.  One Townsville driver wanted to be where I was and destroyed a bloody nice olí shovel head bike I was ridin', nearly lost both legs but the docs saved Ďem.  So now I donít walk so good but I still ride, got a 95 heritage soft tail Harley D.  So is that enough then.
