Thread Name: Anyone know of Tom Yates
Subject: RE: Anyone know of Tom Yates
This my third attempt to post a thread on this blog forum thing. I first met Tom in the early 70's when I went to Disley folk club with Neil Hargreaves he lived down the road fron Tom on Leafield road. Many a night we would go back to Toms after the gig stating up listening to his philosophy. He was a hype intelligent beautiful singer and talker. He deliberately irritated people to get them to listen and elucidate some kind of thought provoked reaction, he knew what he was doing. His music and ideas have forever inspired me. I remember one of his lines which has always haunted me Ina positive way, along the lines of " but what will happen when the wealth I have to offer meets the well constructed mind" Anyway I've been searching for references to his albums for ages, I remember going through the last two with him . I can still get in touch with his first wife Cindy if required. I shall definitely check out these CDs
