Definetly an aquired taste.
I actually quite enjoy the man, but his vocal abilities are definetly a love hate issue
I know a few friends, who have played with him in a pub in Galway, and by all accounts, the man is an absoslute gem, one who is out to enjoy life, and is garanteed to put a smile on your face, and it's maybe this persona you should think of, a man in a pub, pint in hand, bringing cheer and atmosphere to the session, which is what music's about is it not? He was never a professional singer (to my knowledge) and will never be world famous, as it's not in his making, But what he is, is something, wich someday soon, may well be gone.
On Ya Dessie!
