A resident in Cowdenbeath, Fife, Scotland, and former van driver, he answered an ad made by a band, who solicited a drummer. He completed the line-up of the band who were called The Skids. He was in the band during the releasing of Charles (as Thomas) and Into The Valley singles, the Wide Open EP (which featured The Saints Are Coming) and Scared to Dance album during that period. After touring with the band in 1979, promoting Scared to Dance, he departed being replaced by later New Romantic Rusty Egan.
After The Skids, he played drums for Bill Nelson (of Be-Bop Deluxe), in the song "Decline And Fall", for the Quit Dreaming And Get On The Beam album (1981), and on the Sounding The Ritual Echo album. He later played in a band called Secrets.
