He became famous with the band Caravan and was the author of some of their classic tracks: “For Richard”, “Nine Feet Underground”, “The Dabsong Conshirtoe”, “Proper Job/Back To Front”.

Having started his musical career 1966-67 with The Wilde Flowers, he founded Caravan in 1968 with his cousin Richard Sinclair (bass/vocals), Pye Hastings (guitar/vocals), and Richard Coughlan (drums) and has been in and out of that band for 35 years (so far 1968-71, 1973-75, 1979-82, 1990-2002). On Caravan’s first three albums, he developed his organ playing enormously until their famous album In The Land Of Grey And Pink (1971). “Calyx , The Canterbury Website” even calls him “master of the typical Canterbury organ sound/playing”.
