Sparks is a sporting charity that puts on golf tournaments for sick children, and my animal charities include Oldham Cats and Feline Care, a big cat charity close to me in Norfolk. I’m also a Freemason and the money they raise for charity is phenomenal.Rick Wakeman
I’m hugely fond of Scotland. My daughter, Jemma, was born in the Simpson Memorial Maternity Hospital in Edinburgh, and it always tickled me that she was so vexed she didn’t have a Scottish accent even though she was brought up down south.Rick Wakeman
My mother had never had a day’s illness in her life and never thought to have checks. Then, at 78, she discovered she had breast cancer and passed away the next year. But if she’d had a check two years before, they could have done something about it, they could have saved her.Rick Wakeman
I’ve got an overactive brain. I enjoy work, I enjoy life, and I’m not good at relaxing. I’ve also never slept very much due to this overactive imagination and my brain constantly thinking.Rick Wakeman
My life revolves around music and always will. I need to be a part of music and not an observer.Rick Wakeman
