Hi guys....very sorry for not posting anything for ages. It's just a little difficult. Good question, Lee. There was never really any pattern with the way that Lol and I wrote stuff. Sometimes I'd have a complete musical idea: melody, chords and a "feel" about the type of song it was; othe...

Dear All, Finally I am getting round to reply to those of you who have posted responses to my testimony. Let me take them in order… Thank you for your comments, Jonas. Right on, Jo Ann – even the little you wrote tells a very big story… While I remember: “Exit the Heavyweight” Yes, good song – if I ...

My Testimony

Dear All, I'm very sorry not to have contributed anything to Forum Maximum for so long, but I've been a bit busy, and, as I've said before, sometimes I don't have regular access to the internet - this is one of those times. Laurelie suggested to me a few weeks ago that I should post my testimony on ...

It's Personal

Dear all, My best wishes to everyone. I hope you are all thriving. I have an urgent request. As some of you have read, there is some interest in "Beginning to End" in the US, and I am in the process of trying to assemble various items to form a sort of catalogue of my musical achievements....

REPLIES

Thanks, you guys, for all your contributions. Here’s a few brief replies: Mikael, “State Secrets” was originated by Steve and Lol, with add-ons by Mike. I had no input on this one. Matt, I was very excited about “Sight and Sound,” but, unfortunately, they only stage shows written in-house. I had a v...

Beginning to End

Dear all, Without going into too much detail at this stage, I am pleaased to say that some progress is being made with trying to promote "Beginning to End" in the US. What I need to assemble a.s.a.p. is a catalogue of my musical background. As most of you know, I don't have much of the mem...

I am writing to you in the hope that you might consider staging “Beginning to End,” a musical play which I wrote with others at the end of the ’90’s. It tells the story of the Bible, literally from beginning to end, using music and songs written in a variety of different styles. The initial concept ...

Dear Car-eating Man, The change of record company in 1979 was all about making money during our tax-free year out of the UK. We had never had a big advance from Polygram, and that contract expiring in the US and Canada (can't remember where else) was a wonderful opportunity from Zomba's point-of-vie...

Dear Rick and Jo Ann, Delighted to read your messages. For various reasons, I don't get access to the internet at all times at the moment; hence my late response. I will certainly try to write a testimony to you soon. Beginning to End is a long story - in more ways than one! There is a CD of the sou...

Thursday March 29th.2007 Well, some of you may have wondered why I suddenly stopped contributing to the CB website back in 2005. When I first got the job at Bath College at the end of 1999, I was taken on by a guy called Joe Bennett, a very nice man and an excellent guitarist (he’s written books on ...

Band Split

I posted this some time ago, but it's not been put in the history section, and maybe some people missed it first time around, so here it is again: "Well, it seems I have a few duties to perform by way of explaining some things which have been kept quiet for 25 years. You must understand that anythin...
