Does anybody know if JB had any children?
His private life is more or less completely hidden from the world. The video of A Life in the Country which I think was about 1978 when he was 40 something, suggests clearly that he lived then alone with help from a gardener and housekeeper. I have a distant recollection of something in the local press about a son of his but any such thing has rarely been in the public sphere - there may be more in the Palmer book.
It does seem a bit strange to be so secretive...not that I am a real gossip merchant, but the odd basic fact about an artist's life can give some insight into his/ her output and wider philosophy.
I also tended to get the impression that he travelled the world alone...which is quite a lonely life, really. I suppose he drove himself up and down the UK to concerts?
