Geoff Hunt – Bass guitar and mandolin
It was Geoff’s sister, Jean, who is responsible for introducing him to Led Zeppelin, she bought their second LP and the moment Geoff heard ‘Heartbreaker’ he was hooked. He saved his pocket money until he could afford to buy Led Zeppelin I soon followed by Led Zeppelin III. Then came the long wait for the release of Led Zeppelin IV. It was a happy accident that Geoff eventually ended up playing the music which had been such an influence on him all those years ago.Originally a guitarist, Geoff switched to bass in the late seventies after joining a band with one Nick Ferris on guitar. After hearing Nick play Geoff knew he would be better off playing bass and now can’t imagine playing anything else.
Geoff took up the mandolin purely to perform Zep’s beautiful acoustic numbers on stage, also self taught he is always amazed and delighted that the reaction to these songs when performed live.
