GUEST,Nicholas Waller Info about Al Stewart (23) RE: Info about Al Stewart 21 May 06

At one point in his memoir of the Bristol Troubadour my brother mentions "Alex(?) Murphy and Shaggis". Actually it was Noel Murphy and Shaggis, and Shaggis was a teenage banjo player who later got more famous as Elton John's guitarist under his real name of Davey Johnstone. There's a pic of them at the Troubadour in 1968 here.

I never met these people, but I was at a folk club in Somerset a couple of weeks ago (The Old Down Acoustic Club) and Shaggis' ex-wife Diana Johnstone
was playing.

Al Stewart certainly seems like someone it would be interesting to share a crate of wine with.
