Thread Name: Musicians you admire for reasons other than music
Subject: RE: Musicians you admire for reasons other than music
Yes I too initially thought that this might be about those whose day job didn't involve music, but nonetheless were musicians, and were involved in the local musical community. And my thoughts were of Colin Oates (father of Jackie Oates and Jim Moray), by day an electrical engineer known across Europe, who could give the guitar or lute the voice of an angel; who is sorely missed, but whose passing early this year went unremarked on mudcat.
