I had to google him but I thought it would be nice to post one of his songs...bit sad but I guess it's appropriate.

Good choice, Holly - at least to show what a good singer he was.

The day just grew a little sadder.

My favourite song by him is the electrician... weird song but powerful. First heard it from the film Bronson..

Rest in peace.

Tbh, I'm really surprised how popular he was, and the coverage he's got - shame he didn't know. I started the thread thinking no-one would be interested.

I agree.. didn't really like his early stuff, sounded like theme tunes from western films :ooer:

But no denying his voice was fantastic.

I hadn't really thought of listening to him until I saw a TV documentary with some bloke punching a side of beef.

His best work is difficult stuff for most people but I think he's worth making the effort.
