about

Cost Of Living is a progressive rock album released in 1983 by British keyboard player Rick Wakeman.
He overheard my name, when we both happened to be in the same pub; The Redan, in Bayswater.
'Are you descended from Hereward The Wake?' he inquired.
"No".
"Well I am. Hence my surname, Wakeman. Man of Wake".
"Fascinating Rick", I said, and pressed a cassette of my latest three songs into his hand.
Two weeks later his manager - The General - rang me up. "Rick wants you to be the lead singer on his next album".
And so I came to pass an extremely enjoyable six weeks in the company of this great raconteur, practical joker & keyboard prodigy. The result was Cost Of Living.
