Just heard this announced on the radio, Very sad news. What a great singer and entertainer and an absolute gentleman and Gentle Giant of a man.

May he Rest in Peace.

When you get past his crimes against music and his offshore bank account, then RIP.

Outside my cultural comprehension zone TBH

- no doubt though he was HUGE in 70s on the Country circuit.

RIP to the Man and anyway....

Rest in Peace.

This thread deserves to be moved to the Culture section, IMHO.

Way back, an Irish friend in noo yoik told me about Big Tom's first gig in NYC. Queues around the block. Sell-out.

However, closer up, the queues were full of hippy types with long hair and fleas. How could that be? They were attracted by a band called the Mainliners.
