So when was the first time he fell heart-over-head in love, and
"With my first girlfriend, Denise Dakin, around the same time we really got

in agonising grief over that. But at the end of the day you are selfish in those

working stateside as a nanny - has been his constant companion during Leppard's Northeastern swings.
