Paul Chapman

I was incredibly sad hearing of the passing of this lovable, talented and charismatic Welshman. Paul and I had a close working relationship when we played in UFO, now forty years ago. I don’t think there was ever a cross word between us and he, like us all, wanted the to do the best for the band we all loved. The offstage was always as colourful as the onstage and true to say there was never a dull moment. Our bus journeys these days are peppered the with the anecdotes myself, Phil and Andy share about playing alongside Paul. The word ‘affection’ is highest on the list when you think of him. Rest in peace Tonka.
