Oh, I forgot. Any chance of persuading Bill Nelson to come on? An articulate and intelligent chap, with an interesting and very diverse musical life story. Much underappreciated. Oh and he can play guitar a bit too, apparently.

Great chat with TH, but perhaps a missed opportunity to discuss the Yes thing. Maybe he didn't want to...
