Thread Name: Obit: Gary Shearston (1939-2013)
Subject: RE: Obit: Gary Shearston (1939-2013)
I love Gary's voice and songs. His first hit in England, Cole Porter's 'I get a kick out of you,' was produced by an old friend of mine, Hugh Murphy. I'd never met Gary, but exchanged a few e mails with him over the past months, talking of books and music. I sent him a book he'd wanted to read when it was published in the 1970's but had never got round to it. The last time I heard from him was just a few days before he died.
He was such a talented, and really nice guy. My condolences to his family.
