He's producing his own CD-Rs now.  He sent around a Tony Carey disc and a Planet P disc over to my radio station last spring.  The guy sounds like he got caught in a particle oscillator with The Electric Light Orchestra and 10cc.  He even printed his art and liner notes on the sh*ttiest paper stock.  I kinda felt bad for the guy...
Richie Blackmoore, on the other hand, does quite well with a Celtic-rock-New Age-Medieval mishmash band he calls "Blackmoore's Night."  A perfect band for 40-something overweight Wiccan women.  Musically, it's not bad, just not my thing really.
