That's True, Keb! I'd forgotten that small point, haha!!

I guess coz he was one of those characters where his death had been "presumed" a number of times in Australia (alcohol/drugs loomed large, I think, alongside his genius), that Oz Folkies stopped believing he might have actually gone.
I know my partner and I were surprised when quite some years later, Colin's earlier death back in England, was finally and absolutely confirmed!

So yes, perhaps an Appreciation Thread may be the way to go?? .........

You know, Rich-Joy, if Mr. Dryden died in 1988,
then his death and obituary
preceded the existence of Mudcat in the first place.
I mean, how long has Mudcat been around?
35 years, maybe less?

So it has sense that he would have no Obit thread
at the time he died
in a forum that did not yet exist!


Having said that,
maybe a Colin Dryden appreciation thread would be appropriate?

Pete, I think Colin Dryden (1943-1988), whose songs and life have been under discussion on Mudcat quite regularly, has maybe missed out on an OBIT!!
Though he was born in, and died in, Bradford, Yorkshire, most of his singing/performing was done in Australia.

Though I met him and regularly saw him perform, I didn't know him well and I'm not sure that I'd be the best one to write his Obituary for Mudcat!!

However, his niece has written of him on 30July2013 and also the late Dermott Ryder of him and his music (published on on 17March2020) and both are posted here :

What do you think can be done??

There are some additions to make to the roll. Bob Gibson (1996), Frazier Patrick "Pat" Henry (2018) and Joe Daly (2019). The roll began back in 2011 and the trawl through Mudcat at the time didn't bring Bob Gibson to the fore. It should have done! You can read about him here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_Gibson_(musician)

Pat Henry was a well known Folk musician and organiser in Alaska. You can read about him here: https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/juneauempire/obituary.aspx?pid=190494051

Joe Daly was also a lifetime performer of Folk Music in the US state of New York. You can read about him here: https://thelcn.com/lcn01/video-popular-folk-musician-joe-dady-dies-at-61-20190519
I have included them in the "Those who ought to but haven't" section.
