PostHeaderIcon 6/5/2006 NEW GUITARIST FOR THE BOLTON IRON MAIDEN

DAN THE MAN – GUITARIST DANNY COLLINS

Dan_12_04_06_004

Beginnings:

Dan’s musical career began way back as a eleven-year-old. With a nylon-strung acoustic and basic teaching book he began to learn 5 basic songs, this was the number of songs set by his parents to prove how serious he was before they would even consider buying him a electric guitar! Determined and focussed it was not long before the goal of owning an electric guitar was achieved.

Under the newly found teachings of Rob Harris (a highly respected guitar player/teacher) Dan’s playing quickly evolved by imitating some of the best: Acts such as Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton etc. He studied many other forms of music, Jazz, Blues, Funk, Folk and the myriad of new music created as a result of these styles colliding. Dan started teaching the guitar himself from the age of 17, and now is a well known player and teacher around the Cambridgeshire area.

 

 

Live performances:

 

At 14 his first performance was a musical “Kids from Nowhere” to raise money for charity, and by 17 he was playing 3 nights a week for rock band “Uncle Joe”, this led on to him playing in many other cambridgeshire bands, varying in both size and musical style. Turning pro at 18, he later begun to work internationally, playing in Germany, Cyprus, Spain and for his 20th birthday flew to New York in order to further his musical experiences and was lucky enough to play along side members of NPG “the backbone of many a Prince record”

Uk playing has seen him share the stage with, Tonic, Groove Armada, Ezio, Manuka and many more. Now at the age of 27, Dan continues to write, produce and perform for a few UK and US artists, and with his gained experience and knowledge of guitar equipment, he has recently started to review for the “Guitar Buyer” magazine.
