Tom – Guitar & Backing Vocals
After 20 years of learning, day jobs and living in Suffolk Tom moved to London, quickly got on the West End circuit and started playing for Fields of the Nephilim. He is still a member of the band, arguably the kings of goth rock, and regularly plays with them throughout Europe.
Since then he has been working regularly with Edwyn Collins which is still ongoing. On the most recent tour he was in the company of Paul Cook of Sex Pistols fame on drums and Boz Boorer from Morrissey and the Polecats on keys and sax. Recently, he has been playing with eighties icon Adam Ant joining him on his “The Good, the Bad and the Lovely” tour.
He also plays with Arno Carstens, who although not that well known in the UK, is basically the biggest rockstar in South Africa recently supporting Paulo Nutini, Simple Minds, Ultravox, Little Feat and Suzanne Vega to name a few…
Tom’s energy, dynamic stage performance and incredible guitar technique are a vital part of ROCKET’s sound.
