Writer, musician and full-time rock'n'roll fanatic, and Ace's man on the west coast. As token 1960s expert, work for the label includes, amongst many others, critically-acclaimed collections on the Charlatans and Sly Stone, as well as the recent Zombies box set "Zombie Heaven". Intensely proud of his garage-psychedelic Nuggets From The Golden State series, but has been recently creeping into fellow consultants' territories with soul and 1950s rock packages: he loves it all. Enjoys fondling master tapes, and also regards performing with the likes of the Chocolate Watchband and Beau Brummels as an important part of the "archive research".
