I started guitar at the age of 11 after being mesmerised by 'Top of the Pops' and the pop band Slade. Things have moved on since then...
After a brief spell on drums I then moved onto bass guitar and found my true passion with the guitar. Practising drums in a flat didn't go down too well with the neighbours!
In my 20s I had the privilege to play in the Alan Darby band. Alan is one of the UK's top guitarists and has played with some giants of music. http://www.alandarby.com/index.html
I also had the pleasure to work with Mavi Diaz https://www.mavidiazmusic.com , a South American singer, who added a wonderful voice to some of my early Spanish compositions. https://soundcloud.com/keithhastings
I've since covered most genres in music, playing in folk, rock, punk and blues bands. In the early nineties I began to play the beautiful music of the Gipsy Kings which has now become a life long passion.
