Profile

I am Dan, an untidy and smelly 21 year old design graduate from Ravensbourne, London.

I have always had a huge interest in music. Initially my music taste was quite selective, mainly consisting of the heavy rock and metal variety. My tastes have since matured. I enjoy a huge variety of music including rock, reggae, blues, metal, dance and drum and bass. However, the best type of music is live music. No, none of that Britney Spears miming rubbish. You cannot beat the sound of an acoustic guitar and raw vocals, that’s what gives you shivers down your spine.

I have played guitar for a while (and I am still rubbish) but it is always great fun to have a twinkle on that, especially when I play with others. There is not a better feeling in the world than playing a song with a group of people.

I like participating in online social communities, including blogging, tweeting and social networking. I don’t quite know where I would be without the internet any more!
