    Shit. I’m just to young to remember having seen him but my dad (who now has Parkinson’s himself) raves on him. Integral part of Paisley’s early success. 

    He’d suffered with that disease for many years - I remember hearing him speaking about it probably about 30 years ago. Very sad. 

    My Dad's just been diagnosed with it too. Ray was a brilliant player, very sad that he suffered for so long. I loved that interview when Paisley spoke about him saying he was the player all the coaches asked about.

  2. We went to our first gig since January 2020 last night in the Town Hall in Galway. They had vaccine certification checks at the door and compulsory mask wearing throughout but it was worth all of it to hear live music.

    We saw The Lost Brothers with Irish music legend Donal Lunny (Planxty, Moving Hearts etc) and it was an incredible show. The Lost Brothers are an Everly Brothers style duo, brilliant song-writing and harmonies but Donal Lunnys bouzouki playing elevated it so much.

    This Fragile Earth by Susannah Wise. Late 21st century - all utilities stop working and the AIs that run things become erratic. A mother and young child try to survive. Not great to be honest. All just a bit dull. 

    Wherever Seeds May Fall - Peter Cawdron. A first contact story about an alien object heading for earth and how the world prepares. Really good. 

    Now on the new Ballard/Bosch novel from

    Michael Connelly, The Dark Hours. Set post George Floyd and Covid with Bosch ever older and more peripheral it seems. Can’t be long until he kills him off now. 

    I loved the new Connelly book, Bosch still has teeth in it but it's Ballards show now. I think she's an interesting character and could see her teaming up with Boschs daughter eventually.

    We need him to get here with his e street band next summer and play anfield. I might even say something nice about fsg if they pull that off. 

    If he comes to Ireland next year I'm dragging my two sons, 14 and 21, along - both like music but are not Bruce fans. They need to see him play though, he's a one off live perfomer and it may be one of the last chances.
