Warren's first interest in music began at the age of 8 years old after hearing   
jazz music. Around this time he first heard Lonnie Donegan who inspired him to   
pick up an instrument and learn to play.                                         
At his school, Warren's teacher Doreen Page showed massive encouragement and put 
him in touch with a local banjo and guitar tutor Jack Froggatt. After some       
rehearsals they returned to the school to perform a concert for charity. They     
returned twice more, each concert out-performing the last. Jack and his brother   
Norman along with Doreen Page played an enourmous influence on Warren as a       
performer, you could say they were the first to offer active encouragment.       
Since that day Warren has gone on to be a very saught after guitarist and has     
been best compared along side Albert Lee and Elvis' guitarist James Burton. He   
also admires people such as George Harrison, Joe Brown, Nils Lofgren, Bruce       
Springsteen, Pete Seeger and Mark Knopfler to name just a few                     
At the start of 2002 he moved to Coventry to join Paul Leegan & The Legends as   
lead guitarist. Still with Paul's band he has performed at many events and       
shared stage with many top performers of the UK rock scene, from Joe Brown to     
Brian May.
