Geoff Hunt – Bass guitar and mandolin

GHC_bio_6514 Geoff first got into music at the age of 7 after seeing the Beatles film ‘A Hard Day’s Night’. From then on he always wanted to be a musician.
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. Originally a guitarist, Geoff switched to bass in the late seventies after joining a band with one Nick Ferris on guitar.
