70 year old Don - American Pie - McLean, arrested for domestic abuse in the early hours of the morning this week.

 

Late career, David Cassidy stylee, meltdown?

 

We can only hope

 

Now, the English Don McLean (who appeared in the BBC kids TV show Crackerjack in the 1970s) is merely months older than 'American Pie' Don McLean and is still hanging on in there, despite being 71. https://youtu.be/Gkx41xAyZE0

Police blotters now? Short of a lengthy sentence to an old man (see Nuon Chea) why would simple arrests be of interest to DL?

Sing along at Dartford Folk Club this week in memory of Pam Colls (something of a legend as the person who ran the place and was award winning/respected amongst the handful of people who understand the problems and joys of running a folk club).

Andy M Stewart gets a Herald Obituary, which would have been fine for this year. http://www.heraldsco...dy_M_Stewart/}/

A couple of ailing Scottish folkies: 

  1. Rab Noakes, who founded Stealers Wheel with Gerry Rafferty, says he's recovering from throat cancer
  2. Andy M. Stewart, singer, songwriter and former frontman with Silly Wizard, "paralysed from the chest down, with other medical complications" 

 

 

 

Noakes sounds really positive. Andy M Stewart's DDP obit chances - as and when, obviously - don't strike me as massively high.

 

 

Andy M Stewart reportedly dead at 63. https://thesession.o...scussions/38373

 

Awaiting news story/obit to confirm.

 

 

 

Very slow news week - give or take the odd bit of flooding - this'll be just about his best chance of an obit; let's see
