Description: The tragic death of entertainer Vin Garbutt in June 2017 had an enormous impact on me. As a youth Vin had alw3ays been a great influence on me. His honest, straight forward delivery of himself, his comedy and his music enchanted audiences wherever he went. I was lucky enough to have shared the billing at various concerts and gigs across southern Britain with him and I had the pleasure of enjoying his wit, his astounding knowledge and intriguing views on many aspects of life. This song was written the day after I heard of his death. His memory, his voice rang through my ears for hours on end and the only thing that would tame the onslaught was to put my thoughts of the Big Man into a song. Here it is, I hope you enjoy.
