What people who didn't know Graeme don't realise, is that his talents were not confined to songwriting.
He was a brilliant artist particularly when sketching in pen and ink as is evident in the sketches in his songbooks.
He was also invoved in dance having written at least one ballet (that I know of) for a local childrens dance troupe to perform writing not just the storyline but designing the sets and costumes as well.
All this yet like many multi talented people he was driven by the demons of self-doubt which was why so many versions of his songs exist. He was always trying to improve them and could never be convinced that they were brilliant as they were.
He will be sorely missed yet I can take comfort in the fact that I knew him for over 40 years.
