He has experienced a wide range of jobs, including butcher's boy, millhand, postman, farm worker, and post-mortem assistant.
He went to London University, where he started to play the guitar. There he met Lyell Tranter, an Australian guitar player, and Glen Stuart, an actor with a five octave range. They played at Coalhole Folk Club in Cambridge in May of 1969, and that was the birth of Magna Carta.
Chris Simpson is the heart of the band, and has written most of the band's songs.
