“In my Version of Rock History, Richard Strange looms a lot larger than Pete Townsend” Paul Morley

“18 years after first meeting him, just thinking about Richard still reduces me to a state of near hysteria…and terror. He restores one’s faith in the ability of the human spirit to soar.” James Nesbitt

“Strange must surely be the funniest man in London…It is impossible to spend any time within his looming majesty without being engulfed in gales of health-inducing mirth and a sense of fraternal bohemian bonhomie long lost to our crassly commercial times.” Adrian Dannatt, The Art Newspaper

 

A rare solo perfomrance by Richard Strange

How lovely- Joe Elliot of Def Leppard wrote to say : “Can I add my own testimonial to you?” and this is what he wrote:

 

“Blue hair, sequinned eyelids, a guitar that spelled out “Kid”, space age vaudeville that tipped this 16 year old kid over the edge ! One of the most original songwriters & performers of my generation.”
