Gary Taylor - Rhythm Guitar

Gary Taylor

1960’s Gary Taylor was a founder member of UK band “The Herd”, which featured an equally young Peter Frampton. Hit records included “From the Underworld, and “I don’t Want Our Loving to Die” which are still occasionally played on radio to this day.
In the 1970’s having established a secondary career as a BBC radio disc jockey and presenter, Gary was also in demand as a session bass player and guitarist and performed on many hit records with artists such as Dave Dee Dozy Beaky Mick and Tich, Stealers Wheel, Demis Rousos, Jerry Lee Lewis, Fox, Frankie goes to Hollywood, The Proclaimers, Gerry Rafferty and Rodriguez to name but a few.

Gary emigrated to Perth WA in the late 1980’s and began a new career as a jingle writer and voice over artist for agencies both in Australia and Singapore. It was during this time he was surprised and delighted to bump into Hank Marvin who had also emigrated a couple of years earlier.
Hank invited Gary to play bass on his new album Hank Plays Cliff in 1994, which eventually went gold. This was the first of many recordings where they worked together on musical arrangements with Gary sometimes playing keyboards, bass, rhythm guitar and even occasionally vocals.
Currently Gary still writes the odd jingle, performs as a voice over artist, produces music from his home studio and teaches both guitar and bass.
