'I think Paul retired merely because of the fact that he was unable to make a living with his songs, trying to go on the road with a band being the final straw.'

Actually, Paul was making a living on the road but then he also had a car accident, similar to Nic Jones.
His Martin guitar was badly damaged and also his hand - he was unable to play for some time and that's when he stopped playing.
Paul was a school teacher in New Zealand but I guess he didn't want to go back to teaching after the accident so he took up woodwork instead.
By the way, 27 Nov is Paul's birthday.
