LINKS

Please note that this page is still under construction. The links should work and more will be added soon. Cheers, Gordo.

Here are some links to sites with which I have some association.

Companies, musicians and friends, and associations.

Companies

Yamaha Drums I've played Yamaha drums since 1987 and endorsed them from 1990. They really are the best!

Sabian Cymbals I've played Sabian since 1985 and endorsed them from 1990. I love the range of colours and tones!

Beyerdynamic Microphones I recently began using and endorsing Beyerdynamic mics and I've found them to be amazing. Great sound, and great value for money!

Musicians and Friends

Adrian Cunningham A great saxophonist, clarinetist and composer. Good cat too!

John Foreman An extraordinary talent. John is an old friend from the con days. He's a great musician and amazing band leader. One hell of a funny guy too!

Jim Kelly One of Australia's greatest musical minds. An amazing improvisor with a quarky, unique style. A founding member of one Australia's most original and inventive bands, Crossfire. Check out the inspirational Jim Kelly.

James Morrison A true one-off extraordinary talent.

Mike Nock Brilliant composer and innovative jazz pianist. I played in Mike's band back in the late 80s and learnt so much from him about music. I'm very grateful for the lessons!!

Maria Schneider Some of the most beautiful music you will ever hear, Maria is an amazing composer and arranger. Her music is a unique blend of Jazz orchestrated with a classical sensibility. I was extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to play with Maria at the Jazz in The Domain concert here in Sydney back in 2002.

Mitch Cairns A fine young bass player from Newcastle.

Blaine Whittaker The mighty Blaine Whittaker - one of Australia's premier Alto and Baritone soloists and my old flatmate from Eastwood!

Doug Parkinson One of Australia's finest voices - an unsung hero of Aussie music.

Louise Perryman Fantastic singer/songwriter - should be more famous!

Bob James From the USA, the legendary Bob James has done EVRYTHING! I had the pleasure of playing with Bob on his Australian tour in 2001.
