John used to play this tenor saxophone
until 2003 when he passed it to Laurent for further Supertramp musical adventures
with Logicaltramp. He bought it in 1964 and played it on all Supertramp albums

John and Laurent are sharing a genuine
friendship since 1989 when they first met in Paris, and keep seeing each other
whenever they can whether in UK or France. Sometimes fairy tales come true...
