Nimajneb (or Benjamin) was born, kicking and screaming like any other baby, in hospital on April 30th, 1981 in Thailand. Soon he left to go to Singapore at the age of 10 months, where at the age of 4 and a half he went to a school called Tanglin Trust. Grew up and left for England (Oakham town) where at a pub met Rick and than the band formed. But you haven't heard all the bits in-between!

In 1989, Benjamin moved to Hong Kong. He started to play the violin at the age of 8 and only stopped when he achieved grade 8 at the age of 10! He played the Barber of Seville with his friend Justin, who played the Cello - grade 7, in front of the whole school. In his spare time, he would play the song as fast as he could, until he reached 40 seconds once!

High School was easy for Benjamin and he achieved excellent grades so he moved onto Harvard and studied Music, Math and Chemistry. After loads of hard work and stress he finally finished school!

After Harvard, Benjamin moved to Oakham! However, feeling restless he decided to go to Russia for a holiday. One night he found himself in a pub listening to the most amazing singer. After he had performed, Benjamin asked if he would like to meet up for a jamming session. That was the start of the brilliant 2 man band!

By 2003, they had written many good songs and were playing regularly in bars around Las Vegas. It was there that they met Jimi and Ringo and in 2006 they formed: The Gods of Rock!

In 2008, they performed their first live concert on Russia! By 2009, the band was world famous and had they had become super rich! In 2009, their hit single: Spitfire went straight to number 1 and their album: Up in Smoke won best album earlier this year!
