I’m a Yorkshire lass born and raised, although nowadays I love the other side of the Pennines (it’s OK, O have had all my shot!). I’ve always loved music, from listening to my Dad’s 8-Track in the car when I was young, to singing death-metal karaoke in my own car. I rediscovered rock music when I hit my 40’s and I’ve seen more live bands in the past few years than I’ve ever seen before. I’ve been to small festivals and watching unsigned bands bring the house down (and I’ve seen bigger bands be slightly less impressive!). music makes me happy, and it makes me cry too; and thats what I love about it – the passion and the emotion that good music stirs up. There’s nothing I enjoy more than listening to something hard and thrash after a really bad day at work.

A Brummie born and bred, I have DJed several venues across Birmingham and have quite an eclectic taste in music. I was raised on artists such as Little Richard, Elvis Presley and The Beatles, but my main musical tastes lie in rock and metal, rap, hip hop, classical and blues (not the team, I’m a Villa fan). I’ve been playing guitar for over 20 years, but as yet haven’t played in a band, but it is something I would like to do one day. I couldn’t name one favourite band but if asked which give discographies I would want if marooned on a desert island, it would be Megadeth, Behemoth, Gojira, Led Zeppelin and Blues Oyster Cult. But my favourite song of all time is Megadeth’s In my Darkest Hour.

I was raised on artists such as Little Richard, Elvis Presley and The I got into rock music at an early age listening to Motorhead, Iron Maiden and of course Black Sabbath. I have a huge collection of Black Sabbath memorabilia and Vinyl and you’re guaranteed to have them played on any show I do on the radio. While my roots are firmly in the classic rock genre I’ve expanded my rock repertoire with the doom and stoner scene over the last 10-15 years often traveling around the world to seek out new bands as well as the more established.

Born in Brecon, Wales, I love to play video-games, play guitar, cook and run when I’m not involved in music, My favourite band of all time has to be Metallica. Since listening to Ride The lightning when I was 7 years old, I knew metal would play a huge part of my life. I was hooked. Hands down one of the best shows I have ever been to was seeing Black Peaks/Heck on their co-headline tour when they came to Cardiff – in a word: Pandemonium! Would love to sit down with Lars Ulrich just to piss off the internet.

He went on to work on releases from Nirvana, The Rolling Stones, AC/DC and was a member of the 2012 UK Christmas No.1, The Justice Collective. Jon has also been an understudy for The Milk Tray Man, appeared on Big Fat Quiz of The Year, wore offensive t-shirts on TV and is a terrible musician (in his own words!).
