Purple hearts for Mickey S, Robbo (a dedicated follower of fashion) and John Cav for contributions, reservations, resignations and fond farewells (in no particular order).
Honourably mentioned in dispatches Martin Stainton, Bob Shafto, Jeremy Lawson, Jim Houston, Colin Aitken and the Adams family for keeping the life support system switched on and helping me pick up the pennies off the road to feed the meter for the light at the end of the tunnel.
A.M.S, Sound Control Edinburgh (you have the technology, we have the insurance) and Murray Seaton drum hire for the hardware, Gerry 'Scoop' Hamilton. Mummy and Daddy bear for back up in looking after the porridge and little bear. Jimmy Devlin (Eureka!), Graham Carpenter, Jo Busson, Debbie Hanks (cheque it out!), Greg Sambrook, Phil Gibbs, John Reed, Shonadh - and all at Polydor for playing their part in the cunning plan.
Special thanks to Brian Lane for seeing and believing in my dream and picking up my flag, and to all the organisers and members of the Company for holding the torches in the tunnel.
Medal of honour to my wife Tamara and daughter Tara for their patience and understanding while allowing me to pursue the art of guddling.
Welcome back to the circus (cue bandwagon)
