Interviewer: Now, during the Flower People period, who was your drummer?
David St. Hubbins: Stumpy's replacement, Peter James Bond. He also died in mysterious circumstances. We were playing a, uh...
Nigel Tufnel: ...Festival.
David: Jazz blues festival. Where was that?
Nigel: Blues jazz, really.
Derek Smalls: Blues jazz festival.
Nigel: It was in the Isle of, uh...
David: Isle of Lucy. The Isle of Lucy jazz and blues festival.
Nigel: And, uh, it was tragic, really. He exploded on stage.
Derek: Just like that.
David: He just went up.
Nigel: He just was like a flash of green light... and that was it. Nothing was left.
David: It's true, this really did happen.
Nigel: It's true. There was a little green globule on his drum seat.
David: Like a stain, really.
Nigel: It was more of a stain than a globule, actually.
David: You know, several, you know, dozens of people spontaneously combust each year. It's just not really widely reported.
