Thread Name: Obit: Bill Morrissey (1951-2011)
Subject: RE: Obit: Bill Morrissey (1951-2011)
Back in the early '80s at the Sunday hoots at the Stone Church in Newmarket, NH, EVERYBODY performed -- Bill Morrissey, Cormac McCarthy, Doug Clegg, Tom Hall (Curmudgeon who was often hootmeister), Susie Burke, Cosy Sheridan, Doug Johnson from Newburyport...many more.
Back in those days I wished every Sunday when Bill was onstage that I could record his patter between songs even more than the songs. He was a great comic as well as a singer. And a lot of his humorous songs (such as the one about "named Jennifer, Jessica and Jason / Just like every kid across the nation") never were recorded.
