PeadarOfPortsmouth Christy Moore - A bit 'precious'? (107* d) RE: Christy Moore - A bit 'precious'? 12 Feb 08


I can't weigh-in on his concert persona, since I haven't had the opportunity to see him in person. But since it seems like you're all in agreement (with the notable exception of GuestDK) that he is not precious, and this thread has turned into a love-in for the man, I wanted to add two words:

Me too.

I think he is a fantastic artist, great interpretator of songs and a decent songwriter himself. He is perhaps my favorite artist and without a doubt my single biggest influence. I probably wouldn't have picked up a guitar and started singing myself if not for his music. (I'll leave it to those who know me to decide if that's a good thing or not.)

Unfortunately, within the last week, I discovered that I've lost a cassette I had of a live performance he did for Claire FM back in the 90s. It seemed to be a warm-up to "Live at the Point" so now I'm going to spend money I don't have to buy that CD given the recommendations from Steve Shaw, Big Mick, et.al.

Thanks, gang, thanks a lot. :-)

Peter
