Trivia:

Was expelled from boarding school as a boy for changing the organ pipes around in the school chapel during the Christmas period. He was lonely and unhappy because his parents were in Singapore and he couldn't make the journey to his grandmother's house in Llanelli; because it was too expensive. When they attempted to play the organ he described the sound like "Stevie Wonder going mental.". See more »
