Born in the ‘70s Ro has been influenced by music throughout his life. At the tender age of 10, he was dutifully pumping 10ps into the Jukebox to listen to AC/DC’s Whole Lotta Rosie and Iron Maiden’s Run to The Hills constantly, much to the chagrin of everything else in the Youth Club! Ro then went to his first gig – SAXON! From then all music has been his passion, with metal at its heart. This show has been his fourth child – he hopes that people come to enjoy the show as much as he does making it for them!

Birmingham-based DJ and blogger with a lifelong addiction to music. Raised on a diet of Floyd and Zep, and a will to share everything he hears with friends. He’s always looking to find something new and original. Geoff’s blog has allowed him the chance to do exactly that. He tries to see as many bands as he can and he’s not averse to trying something different; the weird, the strange and the challenging. Geoff wants people to react and gain interest, tell him what you’re hearing, tell him about bands you think he should know, introduce him and help him expand his mind!

Genetically an East-ender, born in Fulham, brought up in West London and lived in Colchester for 30 years. Phil’s musical tastes are anchored in the ‘70s with bands like Pink Floyd, YES, Jethro Tull, Cream, Jimi Hendrix Experience and The Rolling Stones. He then fell off the wagon for a while and found disco and jointly ran a mobile operation working as a house DJ for a number of clubs. Phil has now grown up and my musical taste has returned to rock and blues produced over the last 40 years!
Based in Nottinghamshire but born and bred in Derby, Alex was brought up on classic rock and glam metal, this foundation in over-the-top aggressive rock obviously rubbed off on her impressionable and young mind. As she got older, Alex discovered NWOBHM and thrash, and realised she wanted to find bands like Judas Priest and Iron Maiden but, you know….faster. That’s when Alex was lucky enough to be handed a copy of Hammerfall: Chapter V and everything clicked into place! Since then she has been on a journey to find music with the most over-the-top lyrics, catchy melodies and Neo-Classical speed. Having managed a popular local band and also co-owned and operated a band rehearsal room, Alex has a true appreciation of live music and showmanship. In her spare time, Alex loves to learn the history of bands and the genre and is also a part-time VoiceOver artist as well as a writer.

Born, pub opened, heard rock music, played some, still at it. From back street boozers to main stage Rock City, via Student Radio Network, Ian has done the lot, trodden the boards as they say, and it was all by accident! Ian’s at the time favourite rock pub had a serious fire, and whilst it was being fixed, the regular DJ there left for America, one beery Saturday lunchtime. His friends suggested he apply for the DJ job and was given the role. That was 1989, and he hasn’t looked back since! He currently runs his own freehold, The Freebird, which is still dedicated to the cause to this day! Ian’s personal tastes range from his first exposures to rock, in the shape of Blue Oyster Cult way back in the 1970s right through to today, with bands like Lord of The Lost, Manimal, Chuck Norris Experiment, and Black Tree Vultures, all featuring in there, with many many more!
