    Why isn’t Rick wearing a cape, with arms stretched out playing two different keyboards (set needlessly far apart) at the same time? It just doesn’t have the proper 70s style about it.

      He / we grew up.
      Smashie and Nicey have a lot to answer for.

    I was briefly known as the Rick Wakeman of pre press. Working late shift meant that I had three or four workstations available to me. The machine room boys would demand their job first. So every workstation was put to work cooking jobs, making a pdf here, a ps file there, a jlt somewhere else. Meanwhile the scanner drum was spinning, the poster printers were printing. I even had time to scoff a kebab. I loved those days. I’ve got one of his albums in the loft, The Myths and Legends…

    Mum enjoyed a bit of Bach, I recall listening to Toccata and Fugue as a child. Didn’t enjoy it as much as Handel and Beethoven. Funny how early experiences stick on you for life.

      Fascinating, Andy Rick.

      Bach – I wasn’t crazy for him early. Later, slowly.

        I do like this header image. It looks like a cross between a Cathedral and St. Pancras Station.
