BobbyGrindrod probably liked him.
He was quite good.
He was a genius, but he did die some time ago...
in the spirit of this thread, rip Elvis!
no he didn't. In fact, I can't even find a story from today that he's died.
aah, that just shows yer...I wrote him off when I heard he had terminal cancer. What a cunt
but not unexpected
Sad. Will have to listen to Cake Or Death later.
'quite good'? how drole.
he was one of the best songwriters i can think of. i was kinda hoping he'd do a johnny cash but i guess he can't now.
"Swedish Cowboy" - great album. Amazingly atmospheric, which is something I don't think I've ever said about an album before. Perhaps I'm getting old.
Am glad I got to see him play at the Royal Festival Hall a few years ago. That night he looked exceptionally well for his age and put on a most enjoyable show. However, as mentioned above his health had been in decline for the last year or so
