Mark Wincott

Mark WincottI’m a recovering Grunger and retired Mosh pit champion, my hair is no more, bad knees, double hernia, but my beard has grown from strength to strength. Music is the journey to fee, and that is exactly what it does for me. From the moment I heard use your illusions to the moment I heard nirvana to the moment I heard Above by Mad Season. I’m a music fan and have so much respect for anyone who gives an instrument a go.
