|Thanks very much to David Jackson for answering a few questions for us back in December 2000.|
1] You were in a band called Heebalob in 1967 and sent a demo to Jon Anderson (from Yes); had he liked the demo do you think you might have ended up in YES?
DJ: I think he did actually like the Heebalob - but maybe he hadn't been thinking about working with a sax player - as Peter Hammill had.
2] Does a recording of the demo still exist?
DJ: Yes, I think I was once given a cassette tape of it - but I don't remember by whom - and I have completely lost track of it now.
3] Was there a Peter Hammill piece you rehearsed, that didn't work out?
DJ: Do you mean solo show - or solo on a recording? I can remember once trying to add something to a track that Peter said he would think about (it was playing an oboe part on soprano sax) - and he didn't use my track in the end. I wasn't bothered, as it was just reading his score - not my own ideas. Peter 99% knows what he wants and what he wants to try out. If I have reheared for a Concert or Tour, I've always done it.
