Born on 16th October 1959, Gary grew up in Islington, London, on the tougher side of the Essex Road. He first started playing guitar and writing at the age of eleven, but decided he wanted to be in a band after watching Bowie throw his arm around Mick Ronson and sing abut a starman. Gary attended Dame Alice Owen’s grammar school where he met the boys that would eventually become Spandau Ballet. He’s been a Bowie Freak, a Soul Boy, a Punk and a New Romantic, one of which he helped to invent. He owes everything to Trevor Huddleston, Anna Scher, and of course, his mum and dad.
Gary is thrilled to be back playing in the best band in the world, the band that changed his life forever.
