He loved Archie Shepp and taped a whole lot of his recordings and brought them to me in Amsterdam. His picture was even on the local busses for some time (like Julia Roberts in Notting Hill). Pete was a lovely character! deSelby 8 Aug 2013 Came across this page while talking about Pete with a friend of mine. Funnily enough, he mentioned that he had loaned Pete some Archie Shepp album when he lived in Leeds, and never got it back! Oh, and by the way, Thats Dylan Moran and his then girlfriend in the Busarus photo. I remember them both at the time when Dylan was just breaking into comedy. dubdoug 8 Aug 2013 Thanks deSelby, no one’s mentioned Dylan Moran in that pic before! Does look like him. Dirk & Dylan wear White Sox! Comments are closed.
