Knew Gerry for over 40 years, as part of the Shanty Crew up to 1986 when he retired to become a full-time professional busker, a stalwart at Ceilidh Folk and City Folk (the inspiration of his song The Landlord Got Moved By The Brewery) and also through the Monday night folk session at the Waterman's Arms in Richmond which ended each week with a raising rendition of "I Don't Give a Bugger". After that I saw little of Gerry, but did occasionally run into him stopping for a drink in a Central London pub on my way home from work.
