Before picking up the pipe cleaners, Neil performed lead guitar & backing vocals in a heavy metal band called Marseille.

L-R Neil Buchanan, Mark Hays, Sav Pearse, Keith Knowles and Steve Dunwoodie.


And it wasn't just a side hobby: The band won the first UK "Battle of the Bands" in 1977 and went on to support Judas Priest in concert.

The band reformed in 2007, when Neil finished up a 17 year run as host of Art Attack.
