.. Ronnie Drew founder of the Dubliners dies.

Post by Redneck on Mon 18 Aug - 22:05:34

The greatest folk singer and one of my boyhood heros passed away after a longtime illness.
The link gives an insight to a long and somewhat unique history of one of Irelands greatest sons.
RONNIE DREW......R.I.P

Never met / knew the man, never saw The Dubliners live but that voice was unmistakable and will be missed by many.

I've still got a "Dubliners Greatest...." cassette tape, which amazingly the car cassette players didn't eat up.

Pure dead brilliant.
