Saw him live back in the 80s, must have been around the time he released I'm Your Man and then again at the O2 when he was in his 70s about 10 years ago.

One of my favourites, crazy to think he didn't even get into music until his mid 30s as well, yet still had such a great long career. I think his debut album from the late 60s has to be one of my top 5 or so favourite records..

It's often said that if you listen carefully you can hear him squirming in his grave at the prospect of yet another bar/bistro/open mic/busker cover of 'Hallelujah' that completely misses the point.

He's absolutely brilliant. Up there with Dylan, Knopfler and Otis Redding for me in what is a slightly odd foursome.

love them!

especially Knopfler who's often snubbed

There are connections too - 


Dylan was a huge admirer of Otis Redding and its rumoured he wanted him to sing 'Just Like a Woman'.


Knopfler played guitar on some of Dylan's less inspiring records.


What a group those three could have put together?

Almost got me on the subject of the Travelling Wilburys... but that's probably for another thread.
