Kenny was born in Falkirk Scotland at a very young age. As the hospital - Falkirk Infirmary - was so upset at his birth, his parents immediately removed him to the relative safety of Hartlepool in the North East of England. At the age of 12 and still fearing the retribution of the Falkirk doctors, his parents dragged him kicking and screaming to the Republic of South Africa. Here Kenny and his parents lived a quiet life until the day some idiot friend of his brothers bestowed on Kenny a slightly battered, but still usable guitar. It started then........

Kenny is totally self taught and has never had a guitar lesson in his life. (And you can notice it!!) He thinks he knows how to play drums and he's also been overheard plucking away at the old bass guitar, scaring all the neighbourhood children in the process. He dabbles with computers and that's why this site is normally a bit of a mess.

His guitar is a clapped out old Strata-cruiser which has seen better days. He cleaned it once and found 14 plectrums, 3 guitar strings, a packet of fags and an old boot underneath all the dirt and grime.

His amplicator is a 20W Marshall held together with beer stains and masking tape which he pushes through the P.A. to reach the power and volume that he desires. He uses 3 effects pedals, a Roland Distortion, a Roland Digital Delay and a Vox Wah-Wah.

His choice of strings is Ernie Ball (Although he's had the same set on for 3 years) and he uses a heavy sharkfin plectrum. For a slide he prefers an old shotgun cartridge casing that he got from God know's where and that he can never find when it comes time to use it.

Eric Clapton is known as "Slow Hand" because of the speed of which he plays. Kenny is known as "Tight Hand" because you try and get money out of him for a drink.

His aim in life is to find the lost chord.

He's looked under the bed and in all the cupboards but has still had no luck. Oh well!!
