It's a long story, but essentially I was introduced to John Otway's music by my good friend, Roger, when I was living in Aylesbury, John's home town.
At the time, we were also members of a club in Aylesbury called Friars, where, as well as some of the world's and the UK's top live bands, John Otway was a frequent performer. The full story of those times is included in the final chapter of a book I am working on, leading up to the John Otway / Dr. Feelgood trip to Dunkerque in November 2001. John Otway's own autobiography, Cor Baby That's Really Me also covers some of the time I spent in Aylesbury, and brings back many great memories.
