Rod is great. He was THE MAN when I was first going to University in the early 1970s. When I think of my years in Swansea, 1971 to 1974, the song that immediately comes to mind is “Maggie Mae“.

I was worried for a second that he might be ‘up there’ so to speak. HE IS NOT. He is but a Spring Chicken. Just 69. Just a tad older than me (but that is NOT saying much). But, six years younger than the AMAZING Gordon Lightfoot, who at 75, enchanted us, royally, last Friday.

Rod will be magic. I saw him, live, in Worcester, MA, c. 1988. That was quite the show.

This is exciting. Two bona fide Scots — Rod and Susan.

Here’s to the Games. Here’s to our GLORIOUS British Commonwealth.
