David Millington is now retiring from propiertship of the "Well Guitar" Clinic in Colwyn Bay after 9 years helping guitarists find the best set up for their guitar and also building custom guitars for his clientelle. I introduced him to the web site hoping he will add to it for posterity.

I was a founder member of the Citrons , along with Dave Millington , Pete Copeland, and Dave Lund.

When Pete left the band to live in Wales we found John Murphy guitar and vocals, Pete Turner joined the band when Dave Lund left the band to do session work in London. Our first and only record we made was Jenny Jenny. I am now living in Lincoln still playing guitar and keyboards.

Ged Quinn - 4/1/14
