But does he dance to these?
Phil Collins, Everything but the Girl, Manic Street Preachers,
George Michael, Oasis, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Paul Simon, Sting,
The Worry Dolls plus Queen, Bruce Springsteen (just like Methos...),
the Jim Byrnes Band and... the King's Singers??? You know, the people
who sing "Lollipops, lollipops, ooo, lolli-lollipops"?
Peter admits that it's the most embarrassing record he has!
Peter says that putting on Paul Simon's Graceland album
stops Edan from crying! Actually, "Lollipops" is kind
of cute. Maybe he can play it for Edan too...
His son Edan's laugh and... the applause of a large crowd!
Cats. All sorts but especially tigers and cheetahs.
London's Arsenal Football Club is his favorite team. As for playing

ran marathons, played tennis and football (that's soccer in North
America), and snowboarded.
