Road story: Your best or worst experience:

With Fairport Convention leaving a plane at Geneva Airport in 1968, on the way to playing at the Golden Rose of Montreux awards. to come face-to-face with vast amounts of people in Victorian costume, who appeared to be the Sherlock Holmes Society celebrating and reenacting the Death of Moriarty at the Rohrbach Falls, or something like that, but it was nice to be greeted by a Brass Band as we landed...even if it was not for us.

Favorite venue:

Uncle Frank's Sunday Club in Kidderminster in 1967/68.
