Riccardo - Keeper of the Hammond Organ

Great entry!
His home in Edinburgh was in Swanston village (just south of Edinburgh, at the foot of the Pentland hills). You can see where on streetmap.co.uk here

There is also a housing estate built nearby (near Penicuik) in the late 70's where all the streets are named in his honour:

(Stevenson Road, Balfour, Breck, Hawkins, and Samoa Terrace, etc).

Hi Frenchbean,
So you've been to Swanston Village? It's really nice isn't it - all those little thatched cottages, with nice gardens and flowers - right up your street! I used to live near by, but now I live near the centre of Edinburgh.
