When Gary bought his first records, they are the same (Me and my life of the Tremoles) and when Gary began to attend the Anne Scher' s Children' s Theatre, he did the same.
Martin, acheived greatest results to the school of dramatic art getting a part in Play for Today, Jackanory and, in the part of a soccer player, Glittering Prizes.

After seeing a performance of Generation X (a punk group whose singer was Billy Idol) he decided to have an haircut in punk style and to form a band called The Defects

Beyond this, he was particularly interested in soccer, also playing for the young boys team of Arsenal. Unfortunately problems to his knee have forced him to stop his soccer career but the road has opened it towards the one with Spandau.

He is married to Shirley, she's Wham! chorus singer, they have two children.
