on the Flight Deck
Wing Commander Rich
The driving force behind the band. Richard has his eye on the stars. He has been flying rokkits way back into the last century - to the birth of rock 'n' roll itself.
Never overstated, he has a modest taste in clothes and guitars.
Although he'll often ask the question over the tannoy Richard is not really interested if any of the passengers are feeling kinky.
His secret weapon is a wound third; most guitarists have never heard of one of these. Rik is partial to Fenders and tweeds.
All doo-wops and wiggles Margie paints up the band a treat.
Her signature songs are some of the most popular ones we do.
Always struggling to do more changes of attire than Richard between sets she adds sparkle and class and a touch of the blondie. She has a particular thing about boots.
Ben is brand new to the band but some of us have know him for decades.
Thoroughly nice geezer and highly creative metronome he is learning how to keep us all in line and in time whilst providing the thunder to drive along the whole Rokkit experience.
A bass character Pat is as solid as a rokk.
Highly experienced and proficient he selects those lower frequencies and manipulates them is such a way that will make you want to dance... be warned!
along for the ride...
Herbie Payne tries his best and smiles at Richard a lot whilst trying not to fall over.
Richard and Herb go back a long way.
He is so mean he has been known to make some of his own guitars out of wood instead of buying them.
He has never played a wrong note - it might be from a different song but the note is always right even if he has to bend it until it fits.
