Ian Dury was an artist , vocalist , actor and in my opinion a musical genius , for those who know of him I present this little snippet of nostalgia
and for those who don't I give you the opportunity to discover this great musician.
I discovered Ian Dury in the late 70s as a young punk rocker , even then with my tastes into the harder punk bands Ian Dury and The Blockheads stood
out as something a bit special , Ian's voice and stage persona was unlike anything I had seen or heard before and even today the music still holds up
in my opinion.
He contracted polio at age 7 which limited his ability to move on stage and led to the Ian Dury we all new and loved.
What A Waste was as far as I can remember the first Ian Dury song I heard and is still my favorite.
Gone but never forgotten.
