Strapps - all thru' the night

Underwood was born in Middlesex . [1] At the age of 14 he was given his first drum, a second-hand snare drum , and added a third-hand bass drum shortly after. He received drum tuition from Jim Marshall , who went on to become the inventor and manufacturer of the Marshall amplifier . During this period, Underwood met Ritchie Blackmore (then known as Ricky Blackmore) and the two played together in a band called The Dominators, although Underwood was eventually asked to leave the band for "...playing too loud!"
