Neil Buchanan – Guitar
Age: not as old as Andy
Birthplace: Liverpool U.K.
Founder member of Marseille alongside Andy Charters and Keith Knowles.
Neil carved a succesful career in television after the band split in the 80’s and his tv show, Art Attack, can still be seen all over the world toay with over 500 episodes still doing the rounds.
The turning point in Neil’s life was when he was 14 and met his hero Ian Hunter from Mott The Hoople who advised him to “pursue your dream to the end”. Marseille was the dream – and despite international fame as an artist, Neil is still pursuing his first love – ROCK!!
Neil’s main guitar influences are Mick Ralphs, Michael Schenker, Brian May, Angus and anyone who plays from their balls as much as their brains! As far as favourite guitars are concerned, Neil is a Gibson Les Paul Junior man – ” the absolute and ultimate Rock ‘n’ Roll workhorse”!
