Q – You mentioned recently that your son shows musical aptitude, and you sounded rightly proud of him. I was wondering if you’ve ever visited any of your childrens’ classes on Career Day? If so, did you play for them? I know my children (Lloyd fans since before they were born!) would have gotten a kick out of it.

A – I did that this year. I got a local musician friend to come and talk with me, his humour helped to undermine my negative attitude. John, Will and I played a few tunes including ‘Paint It Black’ which I had to learn.
