Roy Harper: Errigle Inn, Belfast

Colin Harper, Independent, The, 6 November 2000

RELEASING HIS THIRTY-SIXTH ALBUM, and still best-known to the world at large as a bloke who once sang on a Pink Floyd record ('Have A Cigar'), who inspired a song on a Led Zeppelin album ('Hats Off To Harper') and who had all sorts of outrageous goings-on attributed to him in the '70s (all down to an over-zealous publicist, apparently), Roy Harper begins his UK tour in Belfast – truly the mark of an independent man.
