    I need to have a big Roy Harper day and go through some of his stuff, I've now played that 'Same Old Rock' link/track today 3 times since recgord27 posted it, trouble is I can't find the CD Stormcock album. Here's another great track of his, one of dozens, the man is such a poet....

    I agree, seen him a few times and he does have a way with words and a great voice, his son is pretty good too.

    I also battled to buy his albums, until I found out that he now controls his own merchandise. You can order it at CD/DVD - Roy Harper Shop

    There's a few musicians when they play the acoustic guitar I really have to sit up and listen. Roy is one of them, an incredible artist.

    I truly believe it's time our country introduced some kind of Statute of Limitations. Over the last few years in The UK we have seen a whole series of celebrity figures have their careers utterly trashed by accusations and charges which were ultimately un-proved (or untrue). True, there have been a few cases where the charges were proven, but how reliable is evidence referring to alleged offences of 30 - 40 years ago?

    I do believe that there are people out there looking to make money, not saying none of it happened, But it just seems more and more are unfounded. I feel for Roy and his family it must be awful.
