Gary’s music career started in the 70’s when he was asked to join 9.30 Fly as the bass player of this EMI signed band and toured the UK extensively. Gary went on to manage a Music Store & Recording Studio and then moved into musical Instrument Industry sales.
“Classic Rock UK” was formed with Gary on main vocals & 2nd guitar, playing theatres and festivals from 2002-2010. Gary then went on to Join “Who’s Next” Europe’s No1Who Tribute taking on the roll of Roger Daltrey & toured extensively throughout the UK & Europe until 2017
Gary is a massive Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers fan, and so he dug out his beloved custom built electric 12 string guitar & set about bringing together other musicians with the shared passion, within a few months he managed to gather the perfect band members together to form “The Tom Petty Legacy”
