Terry Jones was born today in 1942 - Happy Birthday Terry!
I met Terry for the first time outside the Nellie Dean pub, Soho, London in 1975 with Michael Palin when they were doing post production on Tomkinson's Schooldays from the Ripping Yarns series. Several years later, I met him again at the premier of his movie "Erik the Viking" in Brighton. Then he was right in front of me on stage in Trafalgar Square a few years ago (see above photo) when me and approx 5,000 of us broke the Guinness World Record for the world's largest coconut orchestra. Bully for me hey?
