In the backblocks of Iowa you might stumble upon one of America's finest singer songwriters -"Greg Brown".
I was introduced to Greg's music by a dear friend who passed last year. We'd swap and create compilations for each other - natter on the phone about our latest musical find - and punch our way through a couple of large bottles of rum, all in the name of righting the world's wrongs - God bless him.
Greggy Brown was the crown jewel of discovery in our musical bro-mance, and always brings back fond memories'.
"Cold & Dark & Wet" - Ambiguous I know - But - for me it's always been a vignette of his inevitable end.
I just can't imagine preparing for your own send off - handing your house and car back to the bank, getting by on what little you have left, and standing in the rain - smokin your last cigarette.
