Thread Name: Lyr Req: songs by Tommy Sands
Subject: RE: Tommy Sands - Lyrics? Homepage?
Ive had fairly frequent contact with Tommy over the years, and have never been given the impression that he was a close relative of Bobby Sands. Colm is, indeed, his brother. Last time I heard Tommy live was when I took a short walk up over the hill from Doolin to where he was appearing in a local hall. He introduced me that night to one of the funniest guys I have ever met---Crawford Howard. Try and get hold of Crawford's "Diagonal Steam Trap"; if you can penetrate that broad "Belfawast"accent, it's hilarious! Boab
