Any mention of the Amazing Blondel? He was a huge fan apparently.

But but but I'm too young to be a 60s legend! (Too crap to be a legend at all for that matter. )

I mention this because Annie Lennox did sing The Wild Mountain Thyme once at a concert with me drafted in to accompany her on guitar. A charity 'do in Edinburgh but something to tell the grandkids.

Dave Stewart plays mean classical guitar by the way. The Tourists (their first band) sang pop versions of Scottish traditional songs as encores apparently.

Dave Stewart played floor spots around the North East folk clubs in the late sixties and I remember him visiting South Tyne Folk and Blues at least twice. I recaqll he played the same tune each time and totally blew the audience away (no mean feat in the non atmospheric mausoleum of a room that we were using in those days)

Rick Kemp once answered his door to find a young Dave Stewart on the doorstep.

Steeleye Span's Going for Glory contains the single Deep in the Darkest Night which was produced by and features the Eurythmics.

Somewhere in a box back at my old mum's house,
and I can't have listened to it for at least 30 years,
is an LP by young teenage Dave Stewart's 'folk-rock' band "Longdancer"...
