    Hi Jay, was wondering if you were interested in doing an interview with me, through e-mail. I am a moderator for a Mike Oldfield fan group, and I have done over 30 interviews with musicians that have worked with Mike over the years. I would also ask questions about your career, not just about working with Mike on the Tubular Bells 2 concert. If your interested please reply to my e-mail. Thanks Jay for your time. Appreciate it. 🙂

        Hi Jay, I sent the questions to you on July 14th. Sorry I didn’t send a reply sooner, been busy. Hope you received the questions okay. 🙂 Cheers!!!!

    Dear Jay Stapley,

    I´m a student from germany – bavaria. since I remember I see you on tape or on youtube playing solos like eric clapton or mark knopfler. Me and my father watch these videos for ten years – especially your concerts with marius müller westernhagen and I think there isn`t a better way to feel musik and live-concert-atmosphere in the word than in YOUR shows- Now i have the chance to produce a “Late night Show” on student-TV and internet, maybe regular television in the future, and it woud be a dream to me to have you here as my first guest. will you come to germany soon?

    best wishes to you
    Henrik Vorbröker

Cynical? Moi?

Before I start: I accept the outcome of the EU referendum as a democratic exercise, so don’t even start accusing me of sour grapes. What follows is how I see the post-referendum situation in the Conservative party. I have the advantage of having been to an (admittedly minor) public school in England: I know the …

Proud to be British? Not particularly at the moment.

This is a difficult time: I’ve found myself feeling ashamed of a significant proportion of my fellow Brits. The EU referendum is bringing out the worst in some of us: I’ve heard people with the surname “Humphries” (from the Old French personal name Humfrey, a cognate of the Old German names Hunfrid and Humfrid […] …
