About Alan Attwood

Alan is a former editor of The Big Issue. After a lifetime of listening, he is belatedly trying to play music. (So far, very badly.)

My Prayer by The Platters (via Tiny Tim) Story by Alan Attwood

Alan Attwood Sydney, February 1979 Melbourne, 1984 He was wearing a satin clown suit with big black pom-poms, and his schtick was well-rehearsed, but he was also engaging. I felt some sympathy for a singer who’d allowed himself to be pigeon-holed under ‘E’ for eccentrics. The room was strewn with sheet-music.
