Groucho Marxist (inactive) 2000 Obit: folksinger Al Grierson (Nov 2000) (42) RE: The late Al Grierson 06 Nov 00

I'm very saddened by this news.

I got to know Al when I moved to Vancouver about 20 years ago. He knew more Woody Guthrie and Joe Hill songs than anyone I've ever encountered and was one of the nicest guys I've ever met.

I went to the Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas a couple of years ago and connected with Al for the first time in many years. He was still one of the nicest guys in the world and had also become a great songwriter in the years since I met him.

I'm surprised there hasn't been more said about him in this thread. I guess he wasn't known to Mudcatters. That's a real shame.

Thanks for the roses Al.

Groucho (aka Lou)
