So Farewell Then...Tony Hooper

Recommended Posts


Yeah I've gotta coupla Strawbs albums, they had an ever-changing line up see below and Part of the Union wasn't typical of their oeuvre which was understandably erratic but their best work was pretty good - RIP Tony!

I'll shed the manly tears of an old hippie...
