Crowds hail him as a human jukebox, with all the stamina of an elite athlete, because he can play continuously for hours without breaks! M8 also has a unique playing style. This was the consequence of a serious injury, resulting in medical advice that he would never play guitar again. Whilst recuperating from a smashed wrist and shoulder (with his arm in a brace), he was determined to defy the odds, so he experimented with alternative ways to play. M8 identified that he could play guitar using his hand over the top of the neck rather than underneath hence becoming known as the Upside Down Under Musician!
