Roy was a great friend of mine in the 60s We travelled together to various clubs where either he or I were guests. He was a regular at Shotley Bridge folk club in Durham when he carried a guitar case without a guitar, (it carried a change of clothing) but he always said it made him look like a "Folk Singer". There were many occasions, usually an a Sunday late afternoon, when I would get a phone call from him asking me to play some obscure folk club in Scotland or Northumberland because he was stuck on a motorway somewhere unable to get a lift. He never did learn to drive but he didn't need to as he always had many friends who would take him anywhere. My thoughts go out to Elaine and Neil at this sad time.
He was a good bloke.
