    I didn't consider that outside of banding either

    I enjoy travel, science and learning.

    Outside of band I like to go to the gym. A lot

    Step on Mondays (just started this as I used to do rehearsals on a Monday until recently), Body Conditioning and Aquafit on on a Tuesday, Body Attack on a Thursday and more Aquafit on a Saturday. Plus extra sessions of swimming etc when I fancy it. To be fair, the gym is pretty much on my doorstep so it's easy to get to.

    I'm starting to look a bit 'special'. I don't really do much other than working/banding! I get on my bike occasionally, does that count?

    i generally spend most of my time when I am not conducting/playing - seeing how i can become an even bigger "band-geek".......or that's what my wife tells me

    Other than that I try my best to fit in having a family (2 little boys and a wife) in and around band events/rehearsals/jobs/contests etc

    I am a keen biker (I have an original 1987 CBR600) and enjoy tinkering with it, and generally getting covered in oil and copper grease.

    Sadly what gets in the way of all these pleasures is having to work!!

    Rugby for me !! Used to play up until 2004 (neck / shoulder injury put an end to my playing days ) and was a season ticket holder at The Stoop. Was about to start a referee's course when my brother asked me along to play with Becontree - hadn't touched an instrument for 5 years !! The refereeing and the season ticket went for a burton when the banding bug took hold !!!

    Being between bands at the mo I was looking forward to some beer-fuelled Six Nations watching , but Simonhorn of this parish prevailed upon me to have a blow with Fulham for the areas so that idea has gone south as well !!

    And along with Bro Thirteen Ball I have a great love for old school rock / metal. Have seen all the classic bands live many times , Iron Maiden being my favourite. The Astoria was just down the road from the nurses home until crossrail started , and many a happy night was spent there listening to bands like Saxon , UFO and others.

    As the name suggests , also a big fan of Elvis Presley and latterly have been getting into Johnny Cash as well - his "American" albums of covers got me interested , now I'm collecting a lot of his earlier stuff.

    First degree was in History , so I'm a big reader / collector of modern history , WW1 , US Civil War and the Soviet Union being my special interests.

    Then there's me politics as well but I'll not derail this thread with those this time !!

    I have taken a shine to the history of WWII.
    The Channel Islands (particularly Jersey and Guernsey), Malta and Gibralter, have proven to contain an absolute gold mine of museums and related historical buildings.
    The Normandy beaches are next on my list.
    I was born in the late 50s and Birmingham was still a literal 'bomb site'.
    That, along with my education at the time, (which included playground songs like "Hitler has only got one ball"), obviously had a long-term effect on my adult interests!
