The closest thing the band have ever had to a man of mystery, Gareth Thorrington was brought in to cover for Phil Ryan on keyboards a few years back when Phil needed to care fulltime for his wife; Gareth has since filled in admirably on live dates for Man. He isn't overly flashy and doesn't always get much chance to solo, but his driving Hammond is more than just an adequate substitute. His stage presence is very reserved, but having to work with this Ace, you can't blame him for not demanding the spotlight.
When not on the road with the Man band, Gareth has a regular slot with his band The Seratones.
