Jon admits publicly that he once was an art student, although a veil of silence is drawn over his brief but incandescent career as a guitarist. He does however, talk about his early days in the sound business and how he learned his trade by “just going out and doing it”.

Having no formal technical education, Jon worked with some of the best of the first generation of “proper live sound engineers” who had been involved with the industry from its infancy. This invaluable experience has helped make him the fine engineer he is today.
