That's a real shame. Transformer is one of my favourite LPs and I still have the original vinyl copy. He did pretty well to last to that age given his lifestyle.

First thing eldest son and I have done is listen to Transformer,seems fitting Goodnight Ladies is the final track.

Bert Evans, one of the few survivors of the Wormhoudt massacre in the SWW. To read about what men like him went through, and their incredible will to survive, is incredibly movng. Ordinary men who weren't famous, but we owe them an amazing amount.
