Lovers in a dangerous time


"...sometimes you're made to feel that your love's a crime."

Over a decade ago I took my son, a budding guitarist, to his first concert: Bruce Cockburn. Of course I knew Cockburn as a first-rate musician, or thought I did. But on stage with time and space to REALLY PLAY, he astonished me. I raved to my friend Phil my amazement at his genius.

"He's always been a genius," said Phil.

I saw Cockburn again last night. Still a genius.

  1. Notice how people in the club are just nattering away until the music wins them over and they all just shut up.

  2. Yeah: he doesn't need a band, does he? Perfect rhythm and assurance.
