He set a competition with his guitar plectrum which he described as the prize. The question he set was: 'Where did Paul McCartney and Wings record the 'Band on the Run' LP?' I sent in twelve entries to the competition each with the answer: 'Lagos, Nigeria, Africa.' I won the competition and received the plectrum, with other assorted items on 24th December 1987."
