I watched as fear took the old men's gaze
Hopes of the young in troubled graves
'I see no day' I heard him say
So grey is the face of every mortal

Quite well.

Marcus lives around Cork city and is well known by Donal.

He started this book years ago and ran a popular blues radio show. in Ireland (Bluestime) when blues was not that popular

I have met him a few times in the blues club in Cork where he regaled me and others with stories of meeting dr John. Freddie King, Rory and lots of musical legends.

Marcus is a encyopledia of music and has a lot of respect for musicians in general.

It should be a great book and hopefully tie into a lot of Rory's musical tastes.
