British Folk Singer Roy Harper Arrested For A Sex Crime He Committed in the 1970's

Roy Harper is a British folk musician who has released some thirty lps. Although he is best known for providing the vocals for Pink Floyd's hit "Have A Cigar". The long, long arm of British justice caught up with the 72 year old Harper as he has been arrested for a sex crime. It seems that somewhere between 1975-77 he had sex with a 14 year old girl. Mr. Harper has been charged with nine offences. 

Update July, 2014. a trial date is set for August 2014

And how about a sample of Mr. Harper's music here's from an lp called Jugla that  he did with Jimmy Page in the 1980's.

And here's an interview with the two of them recorded as they were making the lp.

  1. He is not charged with having sex with a 14-year-old girl, he is charged with indecent assault and gross indecency with a girl from the age of 12.
