Peter T wote:

I do think it is funny that Brussels, that Brel hated, and that has some claim on being the most boring city in Europe, has embraced him with Brel events, etc.

Well he did live in Brussels from 1929 to 1953!

..."the most boring city in Europe"

Care to elaborate or substantiate? I have lived in Brussels for 12 years (and An Pluimeir Ceolmhar even longer) and I find it very far from being boring!
