GUEST,harvey andrews 2010 Obit: Graham Cooper R.I.P. (45) Graham Cooper R.I.P 29 May 10


My dear friend and writing partner Graham Cooper died this morning after a long illness. We did our last re-union gig together on March 20th on the Wirral. In the early 70's we did 300 gigs in 3 years, opening for the Kinks, touring with Focus, following Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel at the Reading Festival, appearing before the heads of Europe with Juliette Greco and sharing bills with Ritchie Havens, Champion Jack Dupree, Steve Goodman, John Prine, and many others. Graham's biggest moment I know was when Tom Paxton introduced us at our first solo concert at the Queen Elizabeth Hall.
He was a consummate musician, a gentle man of great strength, and I know a lot of Mudcatters will be remembering good times, great songs and much laughter.
Recently Graham had been visiting America and making new friends in the musical world over there.
He will be missed by many, especially by Maggie who will remain in the Algarve.
