Any band or artist you wished you could have seen, but didn't, couldn't - Why?:

Pendragon. They play a lot in Poland for some reason? Or just missed them. Update – The band are touring in 2014 and I will be a special guest at their November gig in St Helens. I’m looking forward to meeting up with the guys after all this time.

Best or most memorable gig ever played

My first gig with Oxym at Oak Hill Park in 1979 in front of 1000 people.

Why do you play the instrument you do?

That’s what I started learning when I was about 16.

Favourite Oxym Song(s)

Hot Rain
From the City
(And hopefully one of the new ones when done?)

What are your hopes for the album

Brilliant production and hope lots buy it and not download it (you won’t get the extras?), because hopefully it’s gonna be so damn good.

Whats the question we should have asked you, but didn't?

Who stole and ate my sandwiches while we were loading up the van, etc at Jackson’s Farm?

And the answer is

I know who they are? Do you?
