Well done Fd J

I thought about mentioning him many times but it makes me feel old! I used to see him regularly at the Middle Earth and Implosion gigs and all the free festivals. He used to wear a white robe and a jesus style headband & obligatory beads and the next minute he would be naked. He was always treated with respect and often people would comment if he wasn't at a big gig.
Robert Elms asked if he was still around on his London Live radio show, I can't be sure of the details but apparently he is still around at smaller gatherings but has to remain clothed at all times and is banned from handing out fruit (Health & Safety no doubt). How tolerant and liberal our society has become!

If anyone has more details I love to know.

Therefore he must do children's parties?
