The Story of “The Other Side”

The Other Side was formed from the end of the Disk Smith Band in 1982.

….I got hold of a keyboard placed my fingers on it until I found something I liked , loved experimenting with unusual chords etc… as I never knew any of the chords that I was playing..I’m sure Kevin said to me one time ..,” you can’t play that..that doesn’t exist ” …Well ” after the hard rock of DSB ..the band had almost burnt themselves out…..and when we got back together we found a mellower more introspective sound and became more aware of some of the social issues of the day as shown in the songs Free them ..disappearing world…Wars…..up until that point it had just been straight ahead hard rock….
