NOW here is a man who could write an interesting autobiography. Times people say that. But in a short time in Richard’s presence and he swoops through the history of British music from sharing a flat with folk legend John Martyn to supporting Steve Martin in the USA.
He discussed blue guitars with Bowie in Beckenham to Des O’Connor fainting on stage as he was heckled in Glasgow!
YourThurrock caught up with him before he went on stage at the Thameside.
