Mark had been a drummer but switched to Bass because Phillip played drums, Boon was a Bass player so he had to switch to guitar and so it remained. Level 42 started off with a cult following gradually building up with one or two hits a year until 1985 when things really took off. Boon cowrote several of the hits including Something About You and Lessons In Love which was a European #1 and both went Top Ten in America. Level 42's European tour in 1987 included 12 Wembley arena and 5 N.E.C's. Later that year while on tour in America Boon felt it was time to leave the band, so he left.
The Stress of constant touring got the better of him and he found he was totally lost. Spent the next few years working on finding himself and his music. Finally he felt ready in 1994 to actually commit to making an album. The album is caled TIN MAN and contains 12 tracks all written and produced by Boon. It was released on the Resurgence record label. Boon is currently writing a new album and putting a band together to go on the road early next year.
There is also another solo album in the can for release in 1996. He feels the time is right for a major period of intense work before finally hanging up his guitar forever and moving on to the next phase. He currently resides in a castle in Devon England thus making for many of the attributes of his current album Tin Man. All Boon wanted was to be in a band and make an album. Without knowing how or why it all came to pass and for that he is very grateful. (signed) Boon Read more on Last.fm.
