Stage 2 was when he went to the first Incredible String Band fan convention in Hebden Bridge twenty years after the band’s demise and surprised himself by winning a String Band trivia quiz.
Among other things he is a singer/songwriter. His 2014 album tracks and lyrics are at http://www.allthetimeinheaven.com. Some of it was described as 'Nick Cave meets Robert Fripp'.
