In 2016, I interviewed Colin at this home in Wimbledon. On the same day, only a couple of hours before, I had interviewed Jon Wozencroft and Mike Harding of TOUCH MUSIC. It was a hot and very humid day. I carried far too much equipment, and it took ages to set up.

Colin was extremely patient and very generous with his time. The light conditions in the room weren’t ideal, so we agreed to do the interview on his roof terrace. Owing to the chaotic situation of that day, I forgot to check the batteries. As a result, only few fragments of the full interview are remaining.
