to ease my Chelsea blues by going to see Billy Bragg play a stonking
set to a packed house at the Roisin Dubh. Good to see all Galway’s old
lefties come out of the woodwork, as well as those who appreciate a good
song well sung.
As the set built I felt pounded by waves of
nostalgia for my teenage London years back in the 1970s, and when he
played 'Levi Stubbs Tears' I felt a rush of emotion and strongly and
suddenly missed my dear departed friend Jon Lewin, who was by my side at
so many gigs back then. He would've been should've been and maybe was
in spirit by my side tonight.
Miss you Jon, did tonight, do often. This one goes out to you mate. X
