Thread Name: Anybody know what happened to Peter Bond
Subject: RE: Anybody know what happened to Peter Bond
Another ancient thread I'd like to pick up: long, long ago (although post 1977) someone wrote (& recorded?) a song called The Wanderer about L.S.Lowry (the best song about him - closest to his spirit - I can recall in my opinion). It was broadcast on national radio (I presume the folk prog. on R2). I'd not heard of Peter Bond then and I'm not sure if it was him or not: I have this vague memory of the author's initials having a P among them; not much to go on, I know, but it seems to be a bit in PB's area (esp. as Lowry spent much of his latter years visiting Sunderland).
The Wanderer in search engines is too vague and of course there's a better-selling RocknRoll song under the same name.
Any offers, from you folk who obviously know so much about him?
