I am planning a few posts to commemorate the life of my old friend Andrew Goodwin who tragically died as a result of a fire in his apartment in Berkeley, California a couple of weeks ago. Andrew’s fiancée, Sandy has created an online memorial.
For now I’m just going to post a photo from our first gig at the Oranges & Lemons in Oxford sometime in 1978.
And also a home recording of a song which I wrote back in 2008 on the night I heard of the death of another friend of mine. The feeling and some of the words (particularly the last line) express some of my emotions related to Andrew’s death.
