Letter announcing reformation (1975)
"Another incident from their troubled road life occured when travelling home late one night during the UK tour. Whilst at a service station a whiskey drinking and very strong individual slashed at Gordian with a plastic knife. He was eventually subdued by four roadies".
"When the police arrived they had him handcuffed on the pavement, and said to me 'do you want to have a go son?. They were inviting me to kick the shit out of him, which I declined, I had blood pouring down my face at the time'. - GT
