They are normal people!
While we were in Malaga - well, Colmenar to be exact, the house opposite our balcony had an picture on the wall of Arthur Brown with his burning hat on. At least I think it was Arthur Brown. It was a bloke with long hair and a beard wearing a caftan with flames coming out of his head.
Slightly thinner. And I don't remember Demis wearing a flaming hat.
