Having read the interview posted by Mrs X:

and made my comments with the others, I've been off on one of my tangents and researched a bit about the "festival" John Foxx describes. It's misquoted as "24 Technicolour Dream" but this is the event he refers to

April 29th 1967. And in the interview John describes himself as being 13 or 14 years old at the time.
That makes his birth year around 1953, so Luca is probably right.

Mind you, I can't find any suggestion that Hendrix played there...

I seem to remember that in a Record Mirror (was it? confused ) feature in 1981 that they quoted John as being 28. It is not to hand by any means so cannot confirm and maybe they came to the conclusion via same method. Anyway, my twopennyworth.
