The Musicians' Olympus

This is intended to be a homage to very many musicians I've loved since I started listening to music. My intention is to tell what I know about them, hoping that those people who like them too, will help me fill numerous gaps, which I may have in their careers and discographies. Sorry, but there are no MP3 audio files here at all, just info (and love for the musicians).

Phil Curtis (aka Phil Shutt) (bass)

BRIEF BIOGRAPHY:

Great bass player, Phil Curtis was born Phil Shutt in Buckinghamshire on March 31st, 1951. He studied at Watford College of Music.


THE STORMBEATS


This is the first band I´ve been able to trace with Phil Curtis (then, still called Phil Shutt). This could be around 1961:
