Charlie Gillett

Tremendous Bore
Agreed, Pete.
One of the residents here was George Brown, a calypso singer known as Young Tiger who then earned his keep providing MOR music for restaurants and similar venues.
Charlie virtually adopted him and got him the first berth on the first BBC Electric Proms at the Roundhouse. Who else would have thought of putting an octogenarian who wasn't a blues king into such a venue. Sadly George died before we could do our voice, guitar and flute debut performance.
Without Charlie, we will hear a smaller variety of music.

My heart goes out to his family and friends. Seems too young to be gone, and what a wonderful legacy he left everyone. He's in good company, and now able to rest in peace.
