GUEST,Ballyholme Lyr/Chords Req: Arthur McBride (from Paul Brady) (46) RE: Paul Brady \ Arthur McBride 18 Nov 03


Legend has it that when Dylan played at Slane Castle in Ireland during the late 70s he requested Brady's presence in his backstage trailer. On entering the trailer, Dylan pushed a guitar into Brady's hands and said: "Show me the chords to The Lakes of Ponchartrain." Which Brady duly did. Maybe the second command was "And while you're at it, show me the chords to Arthur McBride."

I've heard the story repeated on a number of occasions. Who knows.
