Well I can’t go by today without writing something about Doc Neeson, my teenage crush.
Today he passed away at just age 67 from a brain tumour.
He was such a captivating performer that oozed stage charisma. I love his theatrical voice and movement, he was born to perform.
I first noticed his awesomeness back in 1987 when I was in year 9. I think that makes me about 15? I was in art class and one of my fellow students brought in a Tape to play. I loved every song on the tape and asked “who and what is this?”
It turns out that it was The Angels and the Album was The Howling. Come Christmas time I had that album and played it over and over and over again. I then developed a crush and started looking at all of their old stuff and became just a little bit obsessed!!!!
I said it before, he had such presence and a charisma that made me unable to take my eyes of him, oh and lets not forget that I was 15.
I’m not so enchanted by him now but I appreciate his stunning effect on me in those years of my life.
This is his last piece of work, just him talking over some mellow music. My son even likes this and has requested that I play it times.
such a stunning voice
Here is the man in action
You won’t be forgotten Doc Neeson xxx
