Grant McLennan's birthday today

It was on this day 12 February 1958 that Grant William McLennan
was born in the city of Rockhampton some 600 kms north of Brisbane.
If your in New York you can celebrate with Robert Vickers and like
minded people as detailed in this post to the Gob's forum.

Hi New York friends

We've decided to do the Grant get together again this year on
his birthday,
Thursday Feb 12th at the same place,
a bar called HiFi at 169 Ave A at 8pm.

The HiFi's owner Mike Stuto, knew Grant from Mike's time at
Thirsty Ear/Beggar's
Banquet and he will have the juke box
suitably stacked for the night.
Looking forward to seeing you.
Let's hope the weather is better this time!


The rest of us can read this wonderful interview of Grant
by Steve Kilby that Chuck was reminded of when reading
the Robert Vickers invitation.
It dates from 1991 just as Grant released his first solo
album "Watershed"
So Download the pdf, put on some Grant and remember
a great man.
Or hop over to Stupid and Contagious and pick up
a nice Jack Frost boot to listen to Here
