Graham acquired his first guitar in 1962 while on holiday in Spain and upon his return bought a copy of Bert Weedon’s Play in a Day. He has been trying to get his money back ever since! A year later he bought a red electric guitar and formed his first Shadows tribute band – The Tritons.


His musical interests were interrupted by university and the day job but in the 2008 he began playing again at the local guitar clubs. In 2009 he organised ‘Celebrating the Shadows for Children in Need’ which bought together a number of Shadows tribute acts from across the UK playing to an audience of 400 people.


Graham now plays rhythm guitar with The Silver Shadows. He is also Musical Director for the Forum Players amateur dramatic society based at the Bourne End Community Centre.
