I've never tired of his lyrics. Even his crazed books (but you have to be six sheets to the wind before you get to page 2, otherwise they don't make sense). The only guitar I've learned is his music. The trouble is that playing it doesn't make you the central attraction of the party, such as you would be if you played Jake Thackray or Hamish Imlach; you tend to get locked in cupboards instead. Or maybe it's my picking.
One or two other people have recorded his stuff, but never caught it, in my humble etc. Dylan comes close. I can see why Charles is a believer.
("Wimoweh"?? For shame. "Ag, pleez, Daddy", maybe.)
