Thread Name: Boring, Bleating Old Traddy (Peter Bellamy)
Subject: RE: Boring, Bleating Old Traddy (Peter Bellamy)
Thread title reminds me of the anagram: Elmer P. Bleaty (don't know who thought that one up) of Pete's name.
He was an amazing guy, talented in many ways (drawing, painting, cooking - which he got into after visiting New Orleans, dress-making - he made many of his own stage clothes with WIlliam Morris furniture fabrics he bouught in Dalston Market). Oh, and he could sing and write great tunes for that nice Mr Kipling.
One thing I really appreciated - he did not want to sing harmony. WHich left them to Ro and I, who did.
Miss him - especially when I want to ask "do you remember ..."
But since I believe we all go to a Big Party, I'll see him, and Royston, and all the too-damn-many others, later.
