Gordon has played in bands for many years....
He was influenced to pick up a bass by the legendary Phil Lynott albeit not usually advisable to allow him the use of a microphone. Originally played cello but was dismissed from the Orchestra for playing Deep Purple riffs on it and being deemed a "bad influence".
Believes he can play better after 7 or 8 pints. Loves the banter of playing in a band and playing to an appreciative audience whether it be one man and his dog or a crowd of inmates
