Role in Band: Guitar
Musical History: Rich got seriously into the guitar after hearing Appetite for Destruction when he was 11. Several crappy bands were formed whilst still at school, followed by two better original bands (Mrs.Zippy and Edgeplay) whilst at college.
From 2003 - 2006 he played guitar in NAIAD, a rap/metal band who played many gigs, recorded several demos and went on to win Derbyshire band of the year. After NAIAD split he went on to play in Wasted Youth and Sustane, both gigging rock covers bands.
Bored of playing covers and with a desire to write music again, Rich met Steve and began writing and looking for like minded musicians.
Influences: Slash, Jimmy Page, John Fruciante, Paul Kossoff, Hendrix, Keith Richards, Tom Morello
