I have known Richard Harding since the 60’s, when I played bass guitar in a band which included his brother. I gave up music to concentrate on advertising, and began to use Richard and the Cresters to write and record advertising jingles in the studio Richard had built at his home. I think that kick started his career as a music composer and producer for TV and film makers.
We kept in touch, and I recently decided to record a 12 track CD for my wife Joy, who never heard me play. Richard, of course, recorded it, and played both guitar and piano on it. Believe me, he has lost none of his finger dexterity, and some of his guitar work is superb. I had 100 copies made, and gave them to people who then donated £5 to Children in Need.
