Musical tribute to recently deceased friend.
« on: January 29, 2013, 04:24:50 PM »
This burg received some very sad news yesterday.
You might not have known Nigel West, but his unexpected demise has left a lot of people "very stunned" (Wom pers. comm.).
Here's a little ditty that a couple of us concocted this afternoon, by way of tribute and memorial to our very good friend. Sorry for the near-total absence of perfection, we were both a bit upset. Big Nige will be missed by many. One never knows, do one?

That was great! I hope somebody feels prompted to compose and play something as good for my eulogy, would make it all worthwhile!
