Lee Laverack has taken to stages throughout the world, in front of packed venues and stadia for more than a decade, and yet he's never had a chart hit.
That's because he's the guy who sets up instruments, mops up spilt beers mid-performance and says those most famous words in the world of rock; "Check One Two".
Lee joins us on Sheer Isolation this week to tell us about his typical working day, such as sightseeing at the Great Wall of China before heading to a venue to set up the band.
He's worked with Trail of Dead, Sam Fender, Maximo Park and Level 42 to name a few.
Lee also repairs guitars and makes custom components from his Leeds-based workshop.
Our music choices this week are worlds apart; a new release from previous guest, chap-hop artist Professor Elemental, and Lee's choice is a grimy punk track from Yorkshire's Avalanche Party.
Coincidentally, both acts are playing in our region in the next couple of months - although not on the same bill!
Also, Kieran shows off his stash of new CDs and vinyl, including the hot-tipped new album from Wet Leg.
