|A recording artist for 40+ years|
Fast forward to the early 80's and my pleasure at listening to this singer-songwriter was reawakened in the company of future environmentalist Mike Coe and we saw the man live - he was not it seemed in a good place (Play Lady Midnight yelled out one audience member several times).
|And he did novels too|
Life continued for Len he did a spot of Zen got engaged to the beautiful Rebecca de Mornay and was diddled out of several million dollars by his (unsurprisingly female) manager - back on the road in his 70s the Mojo was rediscovered and luckily Debbie and I saw this at a couple of absolutely brilliant concerts ( London's O2 and Wembley gigs).
Last month another album but he's now taken his final encore - we've still got his wit and lyrical precision to reflect on - so a loss but a great body of work for us all to enjoy.
