Subject: RE: Obit: John Morris Rankin Dead (Jan 00)
I saw the band perform at the Queens Hall in Edinburgh in the mid 90s. As a musician myself who has seen some of the world's top bands play live, Rolling Stones, Bruce Springstein, AC/DC, Gary Moore, Foo Fighters and many more, I can say The Rankin Family, although a completely different genre, were the tightest group I have ever seen perform and the closest to their studio album sound. John may be gone, but his contribution, work and life are not forgotten.
