Who are Fula?
A Brief History of Fula
Simon Lind. Guitars.
in Edinburgh in 1968, Simon's varied musical life started in the
mid-80's when he played drums for a number of bands in his home
city. He later took up guitar and spent some time gigging on the
Edinburgh blues-rock circuit.
He moved to Manchester in the early 90's where he first met Rob,
playing in the same band as him. By the mid-90's he had moved to
Warrington where he formed a band called "Crossfire".
For this band he provided keyboards, guitars and lead vocals, which
he describes as "very challenging, but a brilliant experience".
Simon cites many guitar influences - principally Jimi Hendrix and
Stevie Ray Vaughan, as well as Joe Satriani, Eddie Van Halen, Adrian
Legg, Angus Young, Jeff Beck, Jeff Healey, John Martyn, Robben Ford
and Ty Tabor.
A supporter of what he calls "Free Range Music" he describes
"the adrenaline buzz of playing live music" as "the
best drug going".
