Willie-O Last chance to hear... (30) RE: Last chance to hear... 27 Jul 09

I agree with Pip's sentiment, in spades.

The only problem is that the fact that a performer is on a "farewell tour" seems a remarkably poor indicator of whether you'll get another chance to see them live.

Oliver Schroer(Canadian fiddler/composer/inspirer) was perhaps the exception; three weeks before he died, he gave what was openly billed as his "last concert on his tour of Planet Earth", and I wish I'd been there. Whereas I was just lucky that I saw Stan Rogers, Stan Hugill, Phil Ochs, Steve Goodman and Jerry Holland before they cashed their cheques.

The only thing you can be sure of is that everyone you ever see making music will die someday. And Who Knows Where The Time Goes.

Yes, I have a maudlin streak a mile wide!
