The Standing Band – who are they? What are they? And why are they called that? First 2 are easy, they are the band we formed for the 2010 tour, with Richard Hammond, Dave Walsh and Brian Wright joining my long suffering companions Olli Cunningham and Oli Kraus. As to the name, well, it’s a long story – and we all need some mystery in this age of over-sharing, but I welcome any theories. You’ll have to wait for the book!
