Thanx, mate, for your site. Thanx to Tim A. for the facebook tribute page. Most of all, thanx to Alistair. When I simmer, Alistair Hulett brings me to the boil. I've been listening to him all day, for two days, and inspiration invigorates me. Sweet repose, Scottish bloke. We only met once or twice, but I won't forget your passion.
