Hi I am Pyro The Rock Monster! I got the name Pyro when I was young given to me when I went to my mate’s house who had a open fire and my fascination with fire and not setting fire to anything honest! I was lead vocalist of legendary 80’s hard rock band Disaster Area! Well in my head we were legends anyway! Once heard never forgotten! Macca gave me the name Rock Monster and it has stuck! I have been a big rock fan since I was 16. It all started when a mate knocked on the door and asked if I wanted to see Saxon at Portsmouth Guildhall. That was it, I had the bug! I then spent the 80s going to gig after gig! Since then I have been a avid record collector & build up a very large record collection & properly got the worlds largest iTunes playlist currently standing at nearly 128,000 tracks! All of my playlist comes from my own collection Classic rock, prog, blues and AOR it’s all there! But expect a few surprises! I showcase bands you may not know from time to time I think are worth hearing! I specialise in the long prog rock tracks and look for the hidden gems you wont hear on other shows! I have a problem with studio edits and promise to play the full length tracks. A feature of my show is live interviews with the bands! The highlight so far has been Fish of Marillion fame! I am chasing more bands to come on the show in the future! So watch this space!
