A DAY LATE AND A DOLLAR SHORT
Aaaaaaaaaah - Sweet Gene Vincent - still one of my favourite ever songs - I saw Dury (your god bless you wherever you may be - sharing some Thunderbird Wine with Gene I hope) twice when I was a student - on the Stiff records tour with Elvis Costello and as headliner in his own right Brighton ( 1979 I think) - thanks for the memories - if you can dig out "Plaistow Patricia" that would be a treat. So here's to Gene and here's to Ian - proof - if proof were needed - that there is a little more to the UK than .... oh just don't get me started .Thanks again - Steve
That was a good one. I'm always sort of envious of those like SCL who saw the early punk & new wave pioneers back in the day. Gene Vincent & Ian Dury had similar disabilities. Both had a bum foot and/or limp. Ian's was due to polio so he wore special shoes. Not sure about Gene). Lastly, Paul McCartney is a big Ian Dury fan (& Ringo Starr is a big Cramps fan).
I was lucky enoug to see Ian Dury on his final tour - great show and a great band - and McCartney does a great version of Partial To Your Abracdabra PS - thanks for the linky
SCL and Planet Mondo, Thanks for stopping by. Color me green as well. I was lucky enough to see Elvis & the Attractions, and the Clash (The English Beat opened)in 1982 or 83. You Brits were in the thick of it during the late 70's and early 80's.
Ah The Late-Great Sir Ian of Duryshire! I saw him live once in Bradford.A Fine Fellow.
