I became curious to whom might still be in the Strawbs so I dug up my 1983 self-titled cassette of them with Rick Wakeman and saw that there was a "Cousins" in the group back then.
The other writing contributors back then listed "Hudson-Ford."
Curious also if Wakeman still gets royalties from them now having been an original? member?

David Cousins is the sole original member of the band still with the group. The band has gone through numerous permutations and musical styles over their nearly 40 year career, from bluegrass to British folk to symphonic progressive rock. Rick Wakeman, by comparison, was only a member for two years, 1970 and 1971.
