George Papavgeris Obit: Rod Felton (Coventry, UK) 2014 (37) RE: Obit: Rod Felton (Coventry, UK) 2014 29 Mar 14

I din't know Rod very well, but he was a highlight of the folk club scene in the 70s, when I lived in Rugby. When he walked into a club the groupies would quickly gather round him - he seemed to have his own entourage wherever he went.

I have vivid memories from two songs he used to sing - I can only remember scraps of them now, sadly. The first one, about smoking pot: "Poggles' Wood" - "have you ever been to Poggle's Wood, ya-ta-ta-tah, ya-ta-ta-ta-ta-tah...". And the second one, which I would have loved to learn went "I'm coming down in flames, girl / you shot me right between the eyes / and I am taking a vacation to get better...". I guess not to be now, as he never made a CD. What a shame...

Later I also remember Rod as one half of "'im 'n 'im" with Dave Bennett, who sadly also went a few years ago. Perhaps they're jamming together now. I'd like to think they are...
