Since when do you evolve in music?

Phiphi :
I learned the guitar in 1976 (!!). I became a professional in 1993. I played in many bands and even duos. The most "famous" ones are HOT LINE and JASPA. At one time I must have done about 250 concerts a year. But that was before...! I'm also part of a Rock ' Roll and Rockabillie band called The SteamRollers and I started, about 3 years ago, a tribute to Thin Lizzy (a band I love) called BACK IN TOWN which is still active. At the moment I'm working on a project with PRIS K, a very talented artist and musician with whom we just finished her album.
