Interesting music, and pretty good standup too - his live shows are a treat.

Sorry again for your loss, Brian.

I've got pretty much everything he's ever recorded and go see him whenever he visits Oz. Not only a fabulous singer songwriter but as you say a real comedian on stage. We actually had a really good chat one evening cos I told him how much I liked his album 'Dusty' which apparently is not liked by the Fred crowd so he was pretty chuffed to find someone in Sydney of all places that loved the thing.

One of my favourite marine based songs ....

You guys need to hang out on the song chain thread a bit more often ....
