Paul started his musical efforts by playing the flute - after asking for piano or clarinet at school.  After discovering you can't sing and play the flute at the same time he progressed to drums after the school stupidly bought a kit.  Many a happy hour was spent trying to co-ordinate arms and legs and a band was formed (no name) with Kev on guitar and Jon on bass. 

A few years passed before the purchase of a classical guitar from a guy in Brighton where Paul wound up after leaving home.  This resulted in the purchase of an Aria Pro II Electric and hours of trying to understand chords.  Some party entertainment happened in this phase playing Beatles and Commitments type stuff with Ethan on bass and a beat box.

Fast forward to Camberley 1996 where the band Cathouse was born in its first evolution.  A few years into this Simon the bass player left and Paul was given the bass duties - mainly because of the purchase of a Hofner bass. 

Paul joined Andy to form the basis of Heathrow Jets in October 2007 and after several evolutions we arrive at today's line up.
