As a youngster, Gord became attracted to music by listening to his Grade Six teacher at Christ the King Catholic Elementary School in Hamilton, Ontario. Shortly after, Gord discovered the rock & roll magazines of the day which took him in a totally different musical direction. While attending Westdale Secondary School in Hamilton, Ontario, Gord with a few school friends, picked up musical instruments and learned to play; those friends we know today as Teenage Head.
Gord continued his music education attending both Mohawk College and McMaster University. He also had the opportunity to record and play with Dennis Dunaway (Alice Copper), Albert & Joe |Bouchard (Blue Oyster Cult), Marky Ramone (The Ramones), Johnny Thunders (NY Dolls), Robert Gordon, Tom Wilson (Sons Of The Hammer), Andy Shernoff (The Dictators), Cyril Jordan (Flamin' Groovies), and Clem Burke (Blondie).
Picks And Sticks Music is proud to have Gord bring his music and performing education to our music program.
