Alun Owen

Lead Guitar and Vocals

Alun started playing guitar aged 9.

His first ever guitar was an 'Audition' acoustic, from Woolies, bought by his parents (after some pestering) for 7 quid!

A 'few' years later he was gigging across Europe playing guitar with, and for, some sublime and some ridiculous bands.

As one of the original two guitarists in Limehouse Lizzy, he played "some of the finest twin lead guitar music written in the last century."

He has played countless sessions and deps and clinics with T. M. Stevens and toured with Brian Robertson (Thin Lizzy).
