I have only known Dick for the Getaways and the pre-Getaways at Chance and Suzettes, and I agree with much of what has been said already!! He was a "character" and will be missed by many, because in a strange way he represented in one man much of of what I enjoy about Folk music, The appearence of being a rank amateur, while having almost encyclopaedic knowledgable, the slightly down at heel appeareance and slightly out of tune singing and playing (ok a LOT out of tune sometimes) but with a burning joy and enthusiasm for the music and Song, I will miss him
