Jesse Lynn-Dean describes himself as a punk rocker-turned publican-turned punk rocker. 

Now aged 72, Jesse was born and brought up in Islington of London-Welsh parents, went to a good grammar school, was expelled and then started writing music. Armed with a cassette and a lot of nerve, Jesse marched into the offices of EMI and came away with a contract and his career in music took off, along with the rise of Punk Rock. 

After 5 years of successes, and rubbing shoulders with the big names in the Punk Rock music scene, Jesse felt burnt-out and decided to take a break in southern Spain where his parents owned a villa. He bought and pub and spent the next 40 years in that business before selling his then two pubs in early 2019. 

Coming full circle, instead of a quiet retirement Jesse is enjoying something of a come- back with his band, The Wasps.
