Hats off to Roy Harper! The man is a true genius. They jut don't come like him anymore. He is a man who truly gets it. Great article!
Great article, interview, and videos. Jambase needs many more articles like this one. I know it wasn't profitable to sell the albums in the USA, but why not on Itunes? No packaging cost, No shipping cost, et cetera. Give us Americans the taste of good music that we need! Anyone that is admired simultaneously by Jimmy page and the man David Gilmour, is more than alright by me. I hope more people read and comment on this article... The whole Disco biscuit/phish catfights are starting to get boring.
....he'll have his proof soon enough if god exists
ohhh johnny.... not sure if your comment makes me want to laugh or cry?
i suppose maybe its true what you say but, as with so many high and mighties you seem to attempt to inject fear with your statement. why is that? you imply that it will be a bad thing to find said "proof" . as if god is just waiting to punish those who don't believe. kind of silly if you ask me. you just prove the point made in the article about people who say one thing and do another. i bet you have a whole list of the types of people who should be damned by your god. sad.
absolutely not. i do not judge. i simply implied he (as we all will) will know one way or the other soon enough. your the one making an issue about a simple innocent statement.
GREAT interview... knew of Harper from the Zep song and his place in the history books but don't know his music. I will check it out now; he is a very intelligent and articulate fellow.
hmmm i just don't get that from your "innocent" statement , maybe it is just the phrase "soon enough" that implies something more to me , something more foreboding perhaps.... but maybe i am reading more into it than is there.....
geez kizzy...back it down.
oops sorry , silicon chip inside my head was malfunctioning.
What a great interview. I've been a fan of Roy for many a year, since about 1978 when I bought Flat Baroque. Highly recommended albums: "Flat Baroque and Berserk", "When an Old Cricketer Leaves the Crease" and "Once"
We had the pleasure of working with him on a Jethro Tull tribute album (To Cry You A Song - 0n Magna Carta) about a decade ago, he did a wonderful version of Up The 'Pool. He wrote a ridiculous story of the origins of why Ian Anderson stands on one leg to play flute. And he told my boss some other wonderful stories, which we are still not sure what to think of.
Thanks for introducing me to this guy. Sounds like a class act, incredibly perceptive and articulate.
As said before, hats off.
