Well, Tom Hall's memorial event went off massive style. Estimates of the numbers range from 300 to 500. I reckon it was nearer the latter. It was a big room and it was heaving. It was so crowded that we spent a considerable amount of time out on the terrace, watching through the huge cricket pavilion windows.The evening started with an oration from Alan Moore before settling into an unending parade of talent, including Curtis, Sue Figueroa, Accrington Stanley, assorted Bareback Ryders and Ratcliffe Stouts, the Strung Out Sisters and Tom's son Will, who turned in some great versions. I got to sing John The Road and Kissing & Killing, the latter a right royal rave-up. When there were no more songs to sing Stevie Ward let the tape player rip so that we could all do stoopit wee dances to Tom and Guy's deranged live version of Volga Olga. We signed the guest book and headed off to party all night. On the way home I ran into a man who had come from Australia!
