(that's someone from Newcastle
in the UK btw
) most famously responsible for being a member of the Wildhearts
, a superb rock
band that were around about 5 odd years ago. They broke up and reformed a number of times and almost certainly finally broke up because of Ginger
and his wild antics.
When the magazine Kerrang! gave the Wildhearts a bad review, he and the band burst into their offices and trashed everything. Very rock'n'roll I'm sure you'll agree.
He did some less successful solo stuff after that and has recently formed a new band called the Ginger Silver Five I believe. I keep hearing his voice recently on Xfm as he plugs this new project.
