Thread Name: Obit: what happened to Shag Connor?
Subject: RE: Obit: what happened to Shag Connor?
I'm glad to see this thread appear again. I started it under the name Big Byrd. Shag remains one of my favorites and the "Fruzlin" album is still my favorite. Scrump, I too, can't quite decipher the line in the chorus you mention. I'm still trying to figure out the meaning of the "furzlin" word, as well. Are there any other performers who do similar kinds of music? I've taken his song about the Radstock Queen and adapted it to American audiences. Words like "lorry" just are not easily understood by us Yanks. I will check out the reffereces to his son and Brendan Shine. If anyone has contact information, I'd appreciate it.
