Since then, he has had over 30 releases throughout Europe, the USA and Canada - all places he has toured over the years. He was banned from entering the States for 5 years (2006-2011) and made his first "comeback" show in America at the Norton Records 25th Anniversary Weekend, performing alongside such legendary acts as Andre Williams, The Sonics & The South Bay Surfers. His hair is slicked with his own brand of grease, "Nice 'n' Greasy", and plays his guitar through his custom made Richtone Amp. He's been in lotsa bands you've never heard of (Hubcaps, Guilloteens, Bootlegs). Won FME's Coup De Coeur prize in 2007. Released records with Mark "BBQ" Sultan as The Ding- Dongs. Has been in several films & documentaries. Collaborates with King Khan as Tandoori Knights. Has been the spokesmen for a hamburger, The Degeue ("disgusting burger" translated). Usually travels alone as a one man band.
"Despite being a group of “strong personalities,” no one really knows who rules The Beggars, and it doesn’t really matter. Vocalist Steven Davis, guitarist Johnny Wilkins, saxophonist Rod “Pool Party” Jones, drummer Jim Faulkner and bassist Frehley all seem generally less concerned with power struggles and more concerned with the power of their genre-hopping garage “party rock.”"
