The long-awaited definite biography of the mighty Dr. Strangely Strange has finally been announced. Expect tales from the sixties Dublin music scene, about Gary Moore waiting for a babysitter, and lots of pictures of phono fiddles, weird trousers, and orphanages.
We are off later this week for a long weekend in Dublin, with two teenagers. Booked into Once the Musical (either that or Riverdance or a depressing play at the Abbey), and Kilmainham Gaol Tour, and will do Dalkey Castle, Phoenix Park and IMMA. We have some local intelligence which has given us a great set of coffee shops. We could use some Massive information for a daytime early/ev pub to take them into and go ‘this is Guinness’, we’d like to know where to get the best pint. And any other quirky things to see/do that might not be on our radar.
