First, his early career.....The first real band he fronted was Treason. It was the tail end of the NWOBHM and Treason were a metal band in the vein of Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, etc. After eventually disbanding Treason Jaimz went on to form the proto glam band Crash KO taking Treason drummer Stephen "Ace" Finchum with him. By 1984, after years on the circuit Jaimz got a call from Leicester based glam band China Rogue and, after a swift audition, he joined the band. Ironically one of the first shows with China Rogue was at a place called Bogies in Cardiff.
