.
full name -Karen David Wilkes
born - yes
sex - if he's lucky
.
born in the backroom of the lucky haddock fish bar , halton moor and named after his godfather Karen , david was a quiet boy who kept himslf to himself to himself
this all changed when , at the age of ten , he was picked from thousands to play the lead role in the movie version of the stage hit oliver
.
this led to various other roles in hit movies , he was willow , r2d2 , yoda , ET and even won an oscar for his portrayal of the little orphan girl Annie , and although he loved the life , he wanted something else
.
because whilst dave was the talk of tinseltown his old schoolmates Sam 'BAM BAM' Hirst and Paul 'STICKS' Richardson were making bit waves on the music scene with their number one rockin' and a poppin' combo Kajagoogoogoogoogoogoo
.
this was a big turning point for him and despite warnings from freinds and family he decided to pack in his growing movie career and become
.
PHIL COLLINS
.
after several years of motown covers and dodgy ballads with big drum bits in the middle Karen realised that it just was'nt for him
.
he went on to do various other things
but it was while working as a roadie for the fast food rockers that he finaly found his one true passion in life
.
he picked up his first geetar
.
and as they say the rest is history
.
five grammys , six brits , an ivor novello , large fries and a sweet chilli dip
.
he has played with them all , Claptout , Van Driver , Bendix , Moreblack , Robins Trowel , Brian Might , but keeps coming back to his old buds The Erics
,
LONG MAY HE ROCK
