About John Swift
Always loved music, got the bug to play after seeing 'Rock Around The Clock', influenced by many early Rock & Rollers especially 'Buddy Holly', started on guitar in 61 but changed to Bass in 62, we were lucky enough to feel the full impact of the 'Beatles' arrival on the scene and sadly lost the support slot on the toss of a coin on their first visit to Sheffield in the spring of 63.
Sept, Oct, Nov 63 (91 nights) we gigged 62 and held daytime jobs, without a doubt I feel priveliged to have been around and playing at that time.
Joe Cocker worked with our singer and in recent years I've also built speaker systems specialising in Bass guitar enclosures and PA cabs, I built some PA cabs for Def Leppard in their early days, and regularly see Leppard's drummers father 'Geoff' at local gigs we affectionaly call him 'Geoff Leppard.
