Hi there!

As you've probably guessed, I'm a Jim Wilson, and I'm from Manchester, England. I came across this site by accident, but was both shocked and pleased to find it.

I was born in Stockport, Greater Manchester in the North West of England and I still live there now when I'm not at college. My birth date is 9th August 1982.

I'm not quite in the professional world at the moment, I'm only 19 years old, but currently I'm a student at LIPA (the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts) which is Sir Paul McCartney's school in England, studying Music. I have also completed a diploma in Popular Music and Sound Technology there.

This photo with the Strat was actually taken a few years back at an industry showcase in London, mid-song! There was a bit where i wasn't playing, so I had a sip of my pint, turned round, and there was our photographer. A one off photo opportunity!

The interesting thing about the other photo is that it was actually taken by one of Asia's biggest rock stars. SO..... do you go for mid-rock strat/pint action or claims to fame?!? the decision is yours.

I've met Paul once so far. I came downstairs from a rehearsal and there he was, standing in the bar!
