    About time I got on this forum. I first saw Roy back in 60-something, too long ago to remember exactly when. At Brum Town Hall to see Jansch, Bert took a break and introduced Roy to do a couple of songs (Midspring Dithering and Zengem) during the interval. I went straight out the next day and bought the single, followed very soon after by Sophisticated Beggar, and was a regular follower of Roy for the next 20 years or more, initially at small gigs around Brum, the highlight being Mothers in Erdington one night when he amazed us with McGoohan's Blues, then regular appearances at Brum Town Hall. Attendance has been sporadic recently, as have been his gigs, but we had a week in Klonakilty a while back for Harperfest, and will be at Brum Symphony Hall in September, even though £45 per ticket is more than a poor old pensioner can afford and a far cry from half-a-crown for a seat behind the stage in the choir stalls at Brum Town Hall. Still, he's a poor old pensioner himself, so I do not begrudge him the money.
    Somewhere along the line I became a Nick fan too, inevitably, though I have not made the effort lately, and must remedy that soon, maybe at the Musician in Leicester.
    I do a bit of performing myself, very amateurish, either as keyboard player in various bands or as a duo with my wife who writes wonderful songs, or sometimes solo, mostly at open-mike events. If I don't like the audience and I am drunk enough, there is always a danger that my set-list will suddenly change, and include a very bad attempt at "White Man" (but full of feeling, and venom).

    What's going on? Who is the crappy little chappy who added the bit about a zappy little nappy?

    It's an automatic thingy that changes as the post quantity rises (I think). The forum's been a bit quiet recently what with Facebook running the world now but welcome anyway.
