Personal Quote:

They're noted for their rigor. People come out of them saying, "My God, what a rigorous exam!" And so I become a miner instead. I managed to get through the mining exams. They're not very rigorous. There's no rigor ... See more »

Had two daughters with his first wife, Wendy Snowden: Lucy in 1964 and Daisy, who is now an artist, in 1965. See more »
