Grant McLennan RIP

[ #29560 ]

"On Saturday 6th May 2006, legendary Australian singer-songwriter and member of The Go-Betweens Grant McLennan died in his sleep at his home in Brisbane".

The Go-Betweens were my favourite band and I was very sad to hear that Grant McLennan, one half of the singer-songwriter team, had passed away.

I acknowledged Grant in the dedication of my masters thesis and I quoted him in an early version of Spreadsheet::WriteExcel and in the current version of Spreadsheet::WriteExcelXML.

Over 10 years ago on one of my first webpages I wrote: "If Lou Reed had been two people, had grown up in Australia and had been able to write a better love-song, he would have been the Go-Betweens".

Bye-bye Grant.
