"And I'm not just playing it because I love it. I played it because last night, along with 'Up The Pool' and bits of 'Locomotive Breath', I performed that song with Ian Anderson in Bradford Cathedral to raise some much needed money for some church restoration. A good thing to do just before Christmas don't you think."
