IS IT A BIRD? IS IT A PLANE?
Gerald Clark (Kent) should be knighted. He should be revered and heavenly choirs should accompany his journey through life. You've all read right here how wonderful a musician he is. And he IS! His exploits on a guitar and behind a mic have elevated him into the very, very rarefied stratosphere of artists I consider worthy of my unadulterated adulation. The man is a modern day blues legend and a gift to humanity.
That's not all.
He should also be celebrated for his humanity, his humility and his huge...
That's right folks. Here is an artist who could so easily be riding the wave of his own success and being swept away by it. Instead, what does he do? He puts on a great big shiny charity event in aid of those who suffer from Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. He - and a galaxy of local superstars - have collaborated to bring you the FASt Forward Fundraiser on the 4th of May at The Barnyard Theatre in Willowbridge. Joining Gerald on the night are such local luminaries as Fokofpolisiekar, Valiant Swart, Heinz Winckler, Theo Crous, Luna Paige, Natasha Meister and Guy Collins. Fuck! Stick a fork in me - I'm done! That line up is so good, I think I'll be in attendance! Do you think Heinz Winckler would mind some good natured heckling?
