    I first saw Roy Harper at the Waterson's farewell concert at the Royal Albert Hall probably in 1968. When I went to work the next working day I said to my music loving friend 'I have seen the English Bob Dylan'. We went to a nearby record shop at lunchtime and listened to a few tracks from Come Out Fighting. I was sold so was the album to me and we both became lifelong fans at that moment. The first time I actually met Roy was in 1977. In 1974 I emigrated to Australia and by 1976 became a (mature age) student. On a return visit to England at the end of 1976 a Uni friend, Stuart Coupe who later became a major rock journalist in Australia, teed up an interview with Roy at Abbey Road studios at the launch of the Bullinamingvase album. It was a great experience, though one I have only limited memory of due to over indulgence in the album launch celebrations . A trap for new rock journalists!
