Robert Grey

Hear the drummer get wicked.

Captain Carney and Malcolm Boyle have been up to more mischief with Wire drummer Robert Grey today. 

The pair met Robert at his farm in the National Forest and couldn't resist a cruise on his 1956 Massey TEF.  Grey, whose stage name was Robert Gotobed, was lead vocalist with Snakes, who had a hit with Teenage Head in 1973.  After Snakes split up he taught himself to drum and 4 years later he formed part of Wire's original 1976 line up and has since been their regular drummer.

The legendary punk generation art rock band are making an biography with Graham Duff and Malcolm Boyle, who brought Carney in on the project.
