Subject: RE: Malcolm Disley
So deeply shocked to hear the very sad news. I met Malc in 1976 with a guitar in his hand and a harmonica around his neck, playing one of my favorites 'Out on the Weekend' since then he has been a musical inspiration to me as well as a good friend over the years. We shared an admiration for Martin guitars and of course the words and music of Neil Young which we all know he performed so well with that unique style of his own, a talent that was just amazing - a great privelidge to be with and to listen to, whatever he was playing. Will always rembember songs like Sugar Mountain, Out on the Weekend, Star of Bethlehem, Hepless, Long May You Run, as well as many more, the list could go on and on. His musical vocabulary was so wide spread from Blues, Folk, to all types of moderate rock music, someone who had so much passion for his music with the determination and ability to create that vocal harmony with acoustic sound that people just loved and amired, we all know he did it so well. The last time I saw Malc was around 5 weeks ago, again with a guitar in hand, I'm so gutted to know that he has left us - a friend and mucian who inspired all who new him. He will be truely missed.

Nick - a great inspiration to Malc as he was to us

Greatest symapthy to Malcs mum to whom Malc was so close, and loved dearly.
