Nick first began playing drums in the UK during his early teens and played with several 'garage' bands during subsequent years.

In his late twenties and early thirties, he made various live guest appearances as a drummer for a number of professional bands, but kept the live preformances and drumming as a strictly stand-in hobby until he joined the Custodians of Classic Rock in 2003. 

As well as having a great sense of timing and rhythm, Nick also shares the lead singer's role in the band.

With advanced electronic drums at his disposal, he can produce a wide variety of drum sounds and timbres to suit any musical genre and venue.

His wide musical taste and adaptable skills make him an ideal drummer to drive the beat behind the broad musical repertoire of the Custodians of Classic Rock.

As an Englishman, he was the butt of a lot of 'Pommie' and 'blame the drummer' jokes during stage performances, but this never seemed to put him off his rhythm.

Now, since 2016, this teasing is no longer possible as Nick is now a proud Kiwi with NZ Citizenship.
