Terry Hounsome was born In Abingdon, which then was in Berkshire.
He lived mainly in Southampton for the next 40 years, apart from
one 3 year period in the 70's when he moved to West Wales to build
a house in Honeyborough Pembs. After Terry moved back to Southampton he started collecting the
information on records and musicians, that later appeared in the
book Rock Record and Single file, The book was also published
in 3 editions by Blandford Press as New Rock Record. In the late 1980's Terry moved to West Wales again and still collects information for the publications.
Terry has been interested in records/music since a very early
age and spent most of his teens ands early 20's in and around
clubs watching bands play live. He briefly played drums in a local
Southampton band the Senators in the early 60's. The band played
mainly pop covers and were not that good!!!.
