Alan Hull: Guitars, Piano, Harmonium, Vocals, Guinness*
Hull had been the driving force behind influential Tyneside folk rockers Lindisfarne. He wrote many classic songs for the band, including We Can Swing Together, Lady Eleanor and Fog On The Tyne as well as persuing a successful solo career.
There's now a head of steam building for the top brass in the North East to commemorate his life with a blue plaque. You'd think it was the least they could do - to honour one of their own. If you can take five minutes out of your day and lend your support, that would be admirable.
