Spike, is an English rock front man, songwriter and vocalist most famous for his times with The Quireboys with whom he has released six studio albums to date.
It takes some serious bottle (Jack Daniel’s, perhaps?) and a good deal of ambition to up sticks at the age of 17 and seek fame and fortune in the Big Smoke.
But Spike has always boasted both in abundance.
When the charismatic frontman formed the Quireboys in 1984 with songwriting partner Guy Bailey few predicted anything but a glorious failure for this quirky north-south alliance.
Yet within six years the band was riding high with a number two album and Spike was confirmed as a major international star.
It all seemed like a long, long way from those early days propping up the bar in Newcastle’s sweaty Mayfair Rock Club. But for Spike it all seemed so natural.
The face of the Quireboys for almost three decades, the bandana-wearing Geordie with a boyish charm has enjoyed a stellar career, criss-crossing the world’s biggest stages to critical acclaim.
