Pink Floyd Collaborator Roy Harper Denies Child Sex Charges

. (Classic Rock) Pink Floyd collaborator and progressive folk musician Roy Harper has appeared in court to answer charges of abusing two girls. He's alleged to have sexually abused an 11-year-old girl in the 1970s and indecently assaulting a 16-year-old girl in the 1980s.

The 73-year-old appeared in Worcester Crown Court yesterday after being charged in April 2013. He'd previously been voluntarily interviewed by police. At the time an official statement said: "Roy vigorously denies the allegations that have been made against him and looks forward to clearing his name."

Harper is best known for his contribution to Floyd track Have A Cigar, while Led Zeppelin, who cited him as an influence, wrote the song Hats Off To (Roy) Harper as a tribute. He's also been namechecked by the Who, Kate Bush and Jethro Tull, among others. Read more here.
