Rusty Bradshaw – Musician and Self-employed:
Rusty Bradshaw is a great friend of mine who I first met at Bedales School during our sixth form. He is almost like a brother. We have had many adventures in particular whilst traveling around the world. One unforgettable experience we had together was a motorbike accident in Goa, India. All ended well. Rusty is a very talented musician and plays Keyboard for Razorlight as well as playing in his own band The Doctors of Love.
1. Why is music so important to you?
Music is my passion. It’s another language, which expresses life itself. It
Is a therapy and brings much joy to everyone, anywhere.
2. What is the best memory from our school days at Bedales?
Stealing a sofa, running off to the local woods with it, building a shelter and getting high!
3. What is your current work and are you enjoying it?
I am both a painter and decorator and a musician. The work as a musician
Fluctuates in frequency and I therefore find that I have to work as a decorator whenever I can. I do not really enjoy this – i work on my own to maximize my profit – so it can get a little lonely and mundane. I do like working as a session musician though and have worked for the likes of Razorlight and Duke Spirit amongst others.
