I wish him all the best with it.

I love those kind of songs, though.
It must be the greatest tribute to a parent to be seen in those kind of terms, where they are not 'judged' by the 'normal' social mores.

Mick Hanly, on his album 'Warts And All' sings his own 'Uncle John', about a long lost uncle of his.

They are songs to make the hair stand on the back of your neck.
