Subject: RE: Bill Staines House Concert Review
yes.. yes.. and yes... great stories all... and yes.. he is a great guy too......

i've hosted bill in vancouver for the past two years.. this year being the third,..... and have a good 24 hrs with him... (this year 2 days).... we go out for supper before the gig and have a wonderful chat.. last year he had a friend of mine and me in stiches telling us stories of various gigs he's done...... people in the restaurant were looking at us funny..... because you all know how bill loves to tell a story.....

the best part was hearing some of his early (i mean really early ) records that a friend in vancouver had... never knew bill could sing that high.. and not in falsetto or yodelling!.. a young voice indeed... (late 1960's recordings, first album "sombody Blue")

anyway.. looking forward to his visit again this year... and as always learning more of bill songs to sing and educate the rest of the folk around here.....
