PJ bought his first bass in 1979, a Kay Rickenbacker copy. Inspired after watching Rickie Lee Jone's bass player on The Old Grey Whistle Test, the fantastic Reggie McBride. Hours, days weeks and months spent learning songs by ear and then from Chuck Rainey's - 'The Complete Electric Bass Player' and was soon playing with some really great young musicians and then bands with players who would also break through to the pro scene as founder members of bands like Thunder, Airrace, Skunk Anansie and members of Uriah Heep, Wishbone Ash, T'Pau etc. In 1988 PJ was in the cliched 'right place at the right time' to begin life as a session player when hired for his first major tour with the amazing Nina Hagen, first gig to 50,000 in Berlin (with eternal thanks to Bill Liesegang)...
