What an idyllic lifestyle, in every way, and I’ve got to get that book.

Wow - all it took was three words 'Robert At Home', and I knew exactly who this would be, and as expected it made totally fascinating viewing - thanks Tony!

What impressed me most was that garden, what!
Toyah came a close second, and that guitar playing as usual, perfect, like a machine, he was, and still is, the yeast in my daily bread.

They live in the lovely little market town of Pershore, I believe, just down the road from me, and I think the garden runs down to the River Avon. It's a beautiful spot.

What about that sci-fi lift in the background? Intriguing...

Yes Hugh, I’ve paid to see less impressive gardens.
I can’t imagine those two doing anything by halves.

I bet they have too, we have one, without him our garden would be a different story.
He’s just an enthusiastic neighbour, but he does all the heavy work, while we sit there drinking a glass of wine while telling him where to put things, it works well.
I keep him supplied with beers though.

I'm a great admirer of them both and their videos over the last couple of years especially have been breaths of fresh air. I aspire to be as relaxed 'n content as both of them appear to be when I reach their respective ages :clap:

On the specific video linked, given I'm working hard on my guitar chops at present I'm encouraged and intimidated in equal measure by the effortlessness with which Robert plays those riffs cleanly without so much as a casual glance downwards!

"What a lot of stuff, is it all necessary?"

And "exploring among the stars"

To lovely observations.

I aspire but fail, had I an extremely successful career, and accumulated a very secure feeling via a considerable fortune I may feel differently.
I do believe he’s quite a religious person, so that may help.

Robert in a way kind of reminds me of my 1st and only Piano tutor.
No matter how hopeless I was then as a kid my elderly tutor would always find something genuinely encouraging to say to me in his gentle way.

There is a simple short phrase from Robert's 1979 Frippertronics utube video that was burned into me when I first saw it I think a decade earlier.
