MAD DOG / ENGLISHMAN!
Gas fitter from Sheffield generic
Rock singer of others' songs-unique!
His passionate interpretations cannot be imitated
He defined "With a Little Help From My Friends"
as a one man emotional opera.His tour
with MAD DOGS&ENGLISHMEN defined his persona
even more than his appearance @WOODSTOCK.
Young may know him more as 80's collaborative crooner
UP WHERE WE BELONG had that voice (rough,raw,ragged)
coupled with Jennifer Warnes's mellowness.
25 albums later,70 cycles round one sun,he left us.
We replay his uniqueness when we want to remember
our world adolescence/his emotional performances/
how even passion must end.
