If you, like me, grew up in the fabulous decades that were the 70s and 80s, you'll know just how much classic rock there was around. It is my humble duty to bring the best of it to you every weekday morning, between 8 am and 10 am, on The 100% Proof Breakfast Show. As well as this, I'll also feature new releases and some new bands that will hopefully go on to be called classic rock in the future. It's all packaged nicely into a 2 hour show that will wake you and shake you!

Over the years, I've had the good fortune to go to some amazing festivals, from Monsters Of Rock at Donington to Hard Rock Hell to Steelhouse, mostly through working for MMH Radio. The main thing that hits me is the camaraderie of the fans, no matter which band they follow and more often than not there is always a friendly, good-time atmosphere. Most people don't see the enormous amount of work going on behind the scenes to get these bands up on stage at the correct time, as I was privy to at the last two Stonedeaf festivals; a real eye opener. My very first festival was Donington Monsters Of Rock in 1991, with AC/DC top of the bill. My main memories were walking around the site at about midnight, freezing my nuts off and buying cheap tacky MOR t-shirts just to keep warm, as well as watching Metallica on the back of their 'Black' album and a horribly out of place Queensryche. Bottles of warm liquid flying overhead were still happening even then and I was lucky not to get seriously hurt on a few occasions - oh how we laughed! Nowadays, we have the ultimate festival in my eyes, Stonedead; nine bands in one day on one stage bringing a host of classic rock to the fans at an unbelievable price. 2020 will be no different, with Black Star Riders headlining and if you've seen them live before, you know what to expect. I'm so looking forward to being there in August and I bet you are too!
