Otway      

             Is, was and always will be an Aylesbury legend. After Really Free gave Otway his one hit wonder status in 1977 which he regularly played on ('I'm now going to do a selection of my hit'), he confounded everyone by being back on Top of the Pops in 2002, 25 years after last troubling the charts, with the entertaining 'Bunsen Burner'. Plans for a world Otway tour where he took the audience with him in a plane fell through in 2006. He's still gigging today, occasionally with Wild Willy himself and helped close Friars Phase Three in 2010 having played the first gig there in 1975. starred in Otway the movie in 2012
