Hello I am David, I am 35 years old.

I am drummer for The Pocket Gods, who can be found at ... rtist=1702

The band are doing quite well and you might want to have alisten and rate us. It was amazing to be picked for the Radio one web site, after all I am no angry teenager anymore.

Work = I am a learning disabilities nurse.

Family = I have a beautiful Family, Fiona my gorgeous wife and Lewis my lovely little boy, who's 6.

Music = Love Tears for Fears, Genesis, Bowie, Radiohead, Paul Wellar, Stone Roses, all sorts.

Food. Pizza with any sort of meat on, the bigger the better, not healthy but the good stuff never is.

VSD with pulmonary band, just been told I now have pulmonary regurgitation and an enlarged left ventrical plus "wierd" pulmonary arteries so have to do a stress ecg and have an angiogram 6-8 weeks. Also have to have a valve replacement, possibly a pig valve!! I was shocked after being well for the last 30 years of my life.

Plus points: I have managed to quit smoking, quit alcohol, and never taken drugs.

Feeling the effects of my heart condition for the first time that I can remember in 35 busy years, and it is a real pI@@ER!
