John Cholmondeley's bio:

Born too late for my musical taste, I first discovered Roy via Jugula and a gig at Malvern in the summer of '85. My mates were disappointed Jimmy Page didn't turn up, but I was blown away. I'd never seen anyone play anything as long or intense as OOTDIE ... and it all sat very well with my love of stuff like Solid Air. First saw Maz early one morning at Glastonbury in the mid '90's - loved his music too. Must be something about an acoustic guitar and a big PA ...??

John also suggests you check out the solparty: Fri 10th / Sat 11th July 2009 in deepest Kent, featuring Robin Williamson, Barry 'The Fish' Melton, Nik Turner and many more.
