Tom Robinson Band
Dolphin's first band was Dragon's Playground, which earlier had had Annie Lennox as a flautist. In 1976 Dragon's Playground appeared on ATV's New Faces.
His career with the Tom Robinson Band started when Dolphin gave a friend a lift to an audition as bass guitarist for the Tom Robinson Band in 1976. As the band had no drummer at that point, Dolphin (who was already a drummer) filled in. By the end of the evening, the band was still looking for a bass guitarist, but had found their drummer. He stayed for two years, eventually resigning in 1978.
