“I’ve always been amazed at Gilbert O’Sullivan’s capacity to be interesting and different; from the moment I first saw him on a Des O’Connor Show, I knew that this guy had something special. The look at the time was of course the cap and jumper but the songs were anything but cap and jumper. They were and are, poignant, brilliant love songs, clever rhymes, brilliant lyrics – songs that are moving and different and unique. Gilbert’s live performances are always wonderful and full of joy, and sometimes even a little bit spiky and forthright!
I’ve got to know Ray over the years as a colleague and dare I say, as a friend.
The sweetest man, the best music.”
