Andy joined the band when he was still at school and, until Paul joined, he was the youngest in the band.
Like most keyboard players in rock bands, Andy was the only one of us who had had any real musical training and he could even read music. Not that it helped much...
After La Paz split he played with Paul and Alex in Glasgow (the band, not the city) and then went off to pursue a successful business career. Most recently, apart from La Paz, he has guested with Alex in Crossfire.
He has to take most of the credit for continually saying "Guys, when are we going to get La Paz back together again..." even though he failed to do anything about it and didn't turn up for most of the rehearsals.
Once referred to by Doogie in a newspaper interview as "Morgan the Organ", he has finally caved, sold all of his electronic synths and bought a bloody huge Hammond organ. As we all drag ourselves into the 21st Century Mr. Mason has just discovered the 60s... he is now looking for a MOOG so someone on eBay is in for a windfall.
“I was very quiet when we started gigging, totally in awe of Chic and Dougie in particular, the confidence for me came later. There was always massive camaraderie with La Paz; it just worked and we have always remained close friends. I wrote and recorded a lot of different music in the 90’s after La Paz and Glasgow, but the La Paz gigs were always a highlight, so the decision to rehearse and gig again was always going to be a definite yes! I work in Monaco most weeks so that doesn’t help getting to rehearsals….. (sorry, Chic!). Wait until you hear the Hammond though……”
