Brian said: ‘Oh yes, it’s very cathartic. Going back over the errors you’ve made in your life and the disasters that have happened and also the opposite…

He said: ‘That was terrible. Wow. Yes. I forgot that. I was showed by somebody how to hand someone a gun. You held the pistol open, then closed it…

On Alec, he went on: ‘But in this situation, I can’t imagine for the young woman it was truly truly tragic but it’s also tragic for Alec. He’s 68 he’s just had about 10 kids in the last few years. He’s an interesting guy. My heart completely goes out to him…

‘It was tough for the family. I was a little bemused by it all. My brother was older than me. He was 16. It was much tougher on him. As an 8 year old I was more pliable’.

He also discussed his impoverished roots, saying: ”It was very hard. We had a two bedroom flat where 5 of us lived…

‘I would do impersonations – minus the black face – for the whole room to entertain them. You create community just by singing a song or writing a poem.’
