Two slightly distorted electric guitars

Multi instrumentalist Mike Oldfield is 63 today. Haunting music that stretches from windswept hills along the edge of Wales, to airy flights by birds unknown, and a growing ensemble of guitars and percussion climaxing in Tubular Bells. 

“Bikes have been one of my greatest inspirations in music”. Though now residing full time and isolation in the Bahamas, his previous English residences always allowed for countryside rides to free his creative spirit.

  1. I was informed just a few weeks ago that when Mike sold the tubular bells that featured in a certain recording, they were bought by a chap who then stored them for several years, just a few yards away, in the same building where I now have my workshop.
