In 1960, George started his musical career as a guitarist, but switched to keyboards around 1965. Two years later he turned professional and lived in Hamburg during the late 60's and early 70's, playing in the Starclub and the Top Ten Club among many others.
On returning to England in '74, he was involved in session work for Pye Records before joining the legendary Cyril Dagworth Players project as Roving Meg, along with David Parton. Later he played on Parton's hit version of Stevie Wonder's "Isn't She Lovely" and toured with him.
George joined Climax Blues Band in 1980 and toured promoting the Flying The Flag and Lucky For Some albums. He then became part of the nucleus of the band with Colin Cooper and Pete Haycock for the Sample and Hold album in 1983, with the touring Climax being completed by John Rhino Edwards and Jeff Rich as rhythm section. After a short break, Colin Cooper and George re-invented Climax Blues Band with Lester Hunt on guitar.
The Piano Man brings a distinctive touch to the band s sound, he also hits the high notes with his backing vocals and contributes some crowd-pleasing scat singing.
George loves to travel, and his worldly knowledge and debonair demeanour is counter balanced by his youthfulness and zeal as a rock and roller.
Equipment: Korg sp250, Roland vr760 and a pair of Mackie srm 350 monitors.
