Thread Name: Obit: Iain MacKintosh (1932-2006)
Subject: RE: Obit: Iain MacKintosh (August 2006)
Jennifer and I played host to Iain on about three occasions when he was touring the eastern US several years ago, and there wasn't a nicer, less-intrusive guest in the world. Always a good word, always knowledgeable without being pompous or stand-offish, and just an all-'round good guy. The last time he was here, we watched a Billy Connelly comedy broadcast together, both families (his wife was with him this time, as I recall), and we all got the jokes, but thought Connelly used the fucking F-word too much.

I wish I knew half the songs Iain knew, and even more wish that I could put a song over one-tenth as well. I wish he had come through our part of the world more often and more recently. He will be missed.
