GUEST,Dave Hunt Obit: Bill Caddick (1944-2018) (61* d) RE: Obit: Bill Caddick (1944-2018) 21 Nov 18


Not unexpected but that doesn't soften the blow..I was in floods of tears for quite a while yesterday,   .
We were born about 5 miles apart in the same year. We have been friends since the Pipe Hall FC in Bilston in the 60s. He was a part of the Wolverhampton folk scene when he lived in Parkdale with his first wife June and son Christie, He was rwegularly touring clubs all round the country
- He became`a full time member of Magic Lantern for several years - I was a part-time member as Ramo Samee the fire eater (no PC in those days!) Several times I drove him to gigs around the country which was always a real pleasure. By far my favourite writer - and such variety of songs and styles! - Edwardian for Sunny Memories, Circus for 'A Duck on his Head' C&W for 'My good ol' Cherokee' and 'One hand on the radio, One on the Wheel' 'Eights and Aces'and so on.and of course the sublime John O' Dreams'...Unicorns' and the fabulous 'Cloud Factory'   I'll miss you old buddy
