"Ollie was born to be in TBTD. His mum Kate was a founder member and within a few weeks of him being born she was back in the show and Ollie began touring!
I became his 'on the road dad' and have watched him grow into the consummate musician he is today. He was, from the start, a natural, having his first drum kit at three years old. He took everything in, watching from side of stage in his cot! Nature or nurture he had both. Seeing him develop into the man he is today personally and professionally has been a great pleasure for me. He inevitably joined the show, firstly as monitor engineer, then bass player before becoming lead guitarist and he still features on his original love: the drums.
I sometimes can hardly believe Ollie's own 'circle of life' as his son Jackson watches from the wings while clutching his first pair of drumsticks!"
