Mike Oldfield

Steve Turner, unpublished, for Rolling Stone, 1975

Photographs of Mike Oldfield show him to he a tight-lipped introvert with hardly a trace of emotion present in his face. The interviews, when granted, confirm the impression; the isolated fourteenth-century farmhouse in a Gloucestershire valley, the refusal to perform live or even visit London, the seeming disinterest in his own success — and all this information given in minimal spokesman-like answers.
