Subject: RE: Anyone know of Tom Yates
Thank you so much for the lyrics to "Bide A While" I can now put it in my set/section re.the South Manchester Folk scene memories.I knew Tom well..he had childhood polio as did my also deceased partner Trevor Crozier.
I can see Tom now in all his poses/attitudes/ his walk/ his gig-sat down pose - the grin and frailbody.
I`ll always remember him and will take great care to tell audiences about him.
This song is a classic of our area.
love peace and great memories...Tom Yates/Stan Gee/ Mary Asquith my dear departed mates
