: One day I realized I was
missing out on the fun, and I started a band called The
. I'll put up some of their material in due course.
But here's a sample
The Tolkien Affair
: Then I started writing a musical
based upon that trilogy by Tolkien. EMI liked the songs and the
idea. Even members of the Tolkien Foundation liked it. But a
certain Christopher Tolkien didn't like my approach. It wasn't
dinky dinky enough for him. I wasn't writing about cute little
furry fun things. I was writing about real nice guys and really
nasty blighters. He threatened EMI who pulled the plug on the
venture, leaving me with volume one of a projected three volume
set. I'll make that available in due course.
