TEAMtalk: How did you come to support your club and what are your favourite memories from your time as a fan?

Baz: Like most I was born into supporting Celtic, my dad and my brother were Celtic fans so I followed suit.

Best memories are probably going to games around the age of 17/18.. It became a big part of the weekends shenanigans. 

TEAMtalk: Who have been your biggest heroes during your time supporting the club?

Baz: As a youngster Danny McGrain, Paul McStay, Tommy Burns, later King Henrik and St O’Neil 

TEAMtalk: What do you make of the current team? What are your hopes for the (rest of the) season?

Baz: The current team is functioning together under Rodgers but the inconsistency results wise drives me nuts, but that’s football innit! 

TEAMtalk: Everyone has a soft spot for another team. Who’s yours and why?

Baz: St Pauli FC, started obviously from their affiliation with Celtic and the fact they have a skull and crossbones logo but when you look into what they are all about it’s fascinating.

TEAMtalk: What’s going on with the band/for you as an artist at the moment?

Baz: We’re gearing up to release a new album in early March then getting on the road again, I never take for granted the ability to do that, another bite at the apple.
