On the NMA 30th anniversary anthology CD/DVD set, the band, crew and friends have chosen and written about their favourite tracks, and the notes for “Green and Grey” read:
Sadly, Robert is no longer with us to select any songs, and while he may not have chosen this track himself, it’s an apt choice to dedicate to him. “green and Grey was Robert’s masterpiece in which he wrote all the instrumentation and sets the track going by shouting down the hole in the acoustic guitar.
Rob – you are sadly missed, and more so eight years after your untimely death. NMA fans – slip into those clogs, and stick on Vengeance, No Rest for the Wicked or Ghost of Cain, and raise a glass to Mr Rob Heaton (1961-2004). Here’s the big fella himself from the Marquee, 1985.
