and J.R.R.Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings"
is my absolute passion. When I'm not playing,
I'll be listening, and what I like varies greatly.
As a teenager I read J.R.R.Tolkien's "The
Lord of the Rings" for the
first time, and being a musician I wanted to
portray some of
the images that Tolkien evoked in my imagination.
Later in life I met another keen musician who
also shared the same interest, his name is Kevin
Pearce, and we became friends and decided to
embark on a project to create a film-score style
upon the great story, and created a professional
studio-quality CD called....
- Music inspired by The
Lord of the Rings
||One Ring is
the result of our musical collaboration over
a 4 year period (before all the hype for the
Peter Jackson Lord of the Rings movies -
we didn't jump on the bandwagon).
If you are a Tolkien fan, you might be interested

grew up on groups like Pink Floyd, Genesis,
Tangerine Dream, Mike
Oldfield, Thomas Dolby,
The, Moody Blues, Sting, Hawkwind, Motorhead,
The Damned, Tears
for Fears, Rush, the list is
endless, and I can't bear to ditch my huge
collection, and have MP3'd some of my favourites.
I used to hate classical music when I
was young because my father made me listen
to it, but
now I've 'seen the light' and enjoy a number
of classical composers like Mozart, Bach, Prokofiev,
Strauss, Tchaikovsky, Pierre van Maldere. For me
it has to be interesting and imaginative, Holst "The
Planets Suite" is
a perfect example of this, or Vivaldi's "Four
Seasons". John Barry is also a favourite
modern composer. His music is very evocative
and has such grace to it.
the years my musical tastes have changed, and
now I'm more into the modern set. I love ambient
music, groups such as Enigma (all
their albums are superb), Enya, Vangelis (an
Acoustic Alchemy (for beautiful
acoustic guitar), and when I want to pump up
the volume I like
techno and drum-n-bass, like Steve Hillage/System
7, Moby, Leftfield, Banco
de Gaia (Toby Marks
is an absolute master of what I class as intelligent
ambient techno), The Orb (early
stuff), and the "more
classy" techno/trance anthems such as Karen
Ramirez, Paul van Dyk, Faithless, Katcha, Solar
Stone, Airscape, and
others of that style. I have virtually all the Orbital albums
by Phil & Paul Hartnoll who I think are just
I love a bit of "jazz fusion",
in particular Funky Porcini who
have such a laid back style, and for modern jazz
a bit of Pat Metheny.
And for good old rock I like Queen, ELO, Robert
Plant, Supertramp, Jules Holland and Coldplay.
it is - music just fills you with inspiration
and the will to move on and achieve things.
