A 4, 5 and 12-string bassist (and also a guitarist) from Bolton, Lancashire, playing melodic classic rock, glam rock, power-pop - the kind of stuff that people know. Good time music. While it is certainly true that, yes, he IS on a bit of a mission to civilise, he wants to entertain people, not educate them.

Ian has been in a few great little rock bands and has played a couple of thousand shows with over the last 40 years, or so, including The Kerbcrawlers, Rising Force, Bad Habits, Stranded, The Roadrunners, Mother's Ruin, plus The Peppermint Dream. He sings and plays bass with The THREE. He also served periods of time in a couple of other, lesser, bands that turned out to be quite dodgy, despite best efforts to humanize and improve them musically, which he probably prefers to forget about, some of which were awfully bad mistakes that he should forever apologise for them. His friends will know which ones. He has really sinned badly in his time and he's truly sorry.
