Muddy started playing guitar when he was just 13 years old. Hearing Paul McCartney singing "She´s A Woman” was then, the defining moment of his life.
He wanted to be a musician from then on in. It´s been a long road since, starting with some basic classical guitar lessons, then purchasing his first electric guitar (an Ibanez Les Paul copy) His first band comprised of school mates. His first recordings were with the Red House Blues band in the late 70s...
Muddy started playing professionally around -1979 - 1980 in his hometown of Helsinki; playing in different bands, & also doing sessions. Having formed his own first band Havana Blacks, soon after to be followed by Gringos Locos, who recorded three albums, one of them, Punch Drunk, was produced by the legendary Tom Dowd. All this was part of the learning curve leading him to join Wishbone Ash in 2004.
The first album featuring him was the 2005 "Clan Destiny". He then started honing his song writing skills for the following three albums, "Power Of Eternity", "Elegant Stealth" and the critically acclaimed "Blue Horizon"
Muddy became the band´s main song writer, as well as sharing the lead guitar duties.
