Roy Harper: Poetry In Motion With The One Eyed Giant

Jonh Ingham, Sounds, 14 June 1975

ROY HARPER reckons Roger Waters listens to Valentine at least three times a week. He also reckons he's influenced Led Zeppelin and Jethro Tull. If he'd thought of it at the time, he'd probably have told JONH INGHAM that Benjamin Britten had pinched all his licks. He didn't. He merely said: "I've recently become aware that I'm one of the sources."
