Elliott Smith Tribute Night

Was very fortunate last Monday to read my poem 'Dear Elliott' at the Elliott Smith Tribute Night at the Corner Hotel, Richmond. Many thanks to Chris Chapple for asking me to be involved and for accompanying me on guitar (see above) to the tune of Between the Bars. The sold out gig was an amazing success with all funds going to an Australian child abuse charity. For those who don't know, Elliott Smith was an amazingly talented American singer/songwriter who died tragically in October 2003 from a self-inflicted knife wound at the age of 34.
My poem 'Dear Elliott' will also be appearing in print in the soon to be launched 22nd edition of Going Down Swinging.
