It was really good thanks. Excellent set covering the whole of his solo career, with a few Mott classics for good measure. Hopefully he'll be back again soon.
I watched that Ballad of Mott the Hoople DVD. Good stuff there, too.

Very sad about this. Spent many a happy hour listening to Leonard thinking I was being really cool when I was younger. Also remember being at a party down at the Craven estates, around 1973 as I recall, met a young lady and we danced slow to some of his music.

(Earl of Craven was a chum of mine at school, then I got told he blew his head off with a shotgun years later)

There's a few big names gone this year.

I wonder if The Grim Reaper has called an amnesty on them, for the rest of this year?
