in Bridgetown (capital) St Michael Barbados, where I lived
until i was ten. I left Barbados June 1967 and moved
to Birmingham UK. Received my secondary education
at Mount Pleasant Comprehensive School from 1968 to 1974.
have always had liking for music from an early age, I
can remember trying to make a guitar from a piece of wood
and fishing line of a variety of thickness in Barbados
when I was about nine.
my schooling all the children in my year took a test to
find out if we had any musical ability, needless to say,
(or my talent was deemed small enough as to be negligible).
All the children who passed the test were offered musical
tuition on an instrument of their choice, as well as the
normal music tuition which school provided.
that time in my life I wanted to play the trumpet and
was very disappointed tat I had failed the test.
From that point on, until I was about 18 years of age
I had no interest in playing a musical instrument, although
I had music lesions at school. It was until I was
about 17 years old when a mate suggested that together
with a couple more of my friends that we form a Vocal
band, based on the American soul group TheTemptations.
having Reggae Revolution as a separate entity I
feel will only enhance the already international accessibility
of the band and the message it brings through the medium
of reggae music.
