Gordon (Tosh) McIntosh

Gordon McIntoshBirthday: 10.01.1953

Guitar/Bass Guitar/Backing Vocals

Tosh comes from the Clermiston area of Edinburgh where he grew up with two sisters. He had played with several local bands before becoming the last one to join the original line-up of Bilbo Baggins and soon took part in the recording session which eventually secured their record deal with Polydor. Originally the lead guitarist, Tosh adapted well to his change of role to bass player with the departure of Dev.

Known for his own rather sarcastic style of wit and a rather interesting collection of 'holiday' shirts, Tosh liked to joke around. Another football fan, Tosh supports the Edinburgh team Hibs and also has a great love of pool and snooker. If the venue had a pool table you would always know where to find him.

Tosh still lives in Edinburgh and is still a keen musician.

To find out what Tosh is doing now go to Bilbo Today.
