Guest, I suppose he went everywhere he was invited on that last tour, in order to say farewell to as many of his fans as possible. And despite his frailty some of those concerts must rank among the best ones he ever did. I agree it was amazing, and he was a very special person. Not a saint by any means - although I just had an eMail where he was called 'oor Messiah wi' the banjo' - but certainly a man you don't meet every day.
