Do you have a ritual that you always do,
before you go onstage?

Walk to stage right, jump up and down for a bit, check ugliness of crowd, take fiddle from current stage slave, check tuning, take stage... and shout “Hello Cleveland!”

Do you still have a role to play in addressing the problems of our times or have you said all that needs to be said? Do you think we want a better world badly enough?
Anyone fancy a pint?

If you had to choose a new name for the band what would it be and why?
The Beatles – it might fool people long enough to make me very rich

What was the most rebellious thing you did at school?
I killed the school goldfish and the stick insects with nitric acid….uuurgh!

If you weren't in the Levellers, would you be a fan?
A stalker

If the situation were to arise, would you ever play a gig before the royal family?
