In 1996, I received a hilarious 11-page hand-written letter from Eddie Stratton detailing his experiences in Scientology. I responded and received a 20-page letter by return of post. It was marked 'Beware! Contains live wildebeest', which set the tone for our continuing conversation and our enduring friendship.

Eddie was hurled to fame as the drummer with rap-metal band One Minute Silence in the late nineties (well, they had a hit in New Zealand).

I went to five gigs over the years, and have signed copies of their three albums (and Ed stuck me in the dedication sections of all three). They were a fine live act and produced driving and lyrically stimulating music, much of which suggested that we should think for ourselves. Holy Man is a very good example.
