I've worked in stage musicals a bit. Even though I'm a rock musician and Pink Floyd fan at heart, I love musicals.  I was Musical Director of the Highly original Theatre Company in the late 1980s and before that worked with Hull Musical Youth.

Phantom, Evita, Superstar, Starlight Express - all brilliant but not just Lloyd Webber Ones. Allsorts from Spamalot to Calamity Jane, Oliver to Blood Brothers. We Will Rock You to West Side Story. My favourite of all???? Tim Rice's wonderful Blondel.

I have written a musical about Winston Churchill and the effect he had on the British public in World War 2. Could you be the one to help me get it performed? There are some nice tunes in there!

Oh and I do have a hankering to write one about Robin Hood!
