Happy to send all the good thoughts I have to him. I've had two major heart surgeries and one minor heart surgery myself so I know that things can go wrong as well as right. In this day and age we often think of this stuff as routine and it never really is. We'll be here with a candle lit LF......and when he's better, send him round to the 'Cat.

"Twas Reuben and Benbow
Fought the French, fought the French.
Twas Reuben and Benbow fought the French.
Oh the ship rocked up and down
While the bullets whizzing 'round
And the enemy falling down.
There they lay; there they lay"

Definitely an Admiral...of the one legged variety. Steve will need both of his to walk out of the hospital.

One-legged? No way - two stumps, and undefeated.

Brave Benbow

Brave Benbow lost his legs by chain shot
By chain shot,
Brave Benbow lost his legs by chain shot.
Brave Benbow lost his legs
And all on his stumps he begs
Fight on, my English lads
'Tis our lot, 'tis our lot.


A good namesake to have.

I well remember a great version of Jack Hall Steve recorded, with pretty well the same tunme as Admirall Benbow. Unlike Sam Hall, it's not bitter, just defiant. With a verse I've not heard other people sing generally:

I saw Molly in the crowd, in the crowd,
I saw Molly in the crowd, in the crowd,
I saw Molly in the crowd, and I hollered out, right light
Now Molly, ain't you proud, ain't you proud,
Now Molly, ain't you proud, ain't you proud.

Slight (light) error there. It shopuld be:

I saw Molly in the crowd, in the crowd,

Steve recorded "Admiral Benbow" years ago on his album of the same name. It's a terrific album, and I've been an ardent Benbow fan since I first heard it in 1963 or thereabouts.

Many good wishes for a speedy recovery, Steve!

Just seen this thread. Like Roger, I remember Steve well from those Saturday mornings. Spike Milligan once said, "That was Steve Benbow. They tell me he's a folk singer. I wonder what he does for a living?"

Give him my best wishes too -- he's largely responsible for my following in his footsteps! I'll sing Admiral B tonight fo him at Bedford, and pass on the news.

It's not mentioned in the song, BTW, but Admiral B survived his op long enough to get back to port and hang the captains who "turned tail/In a fright", so there's a good precedent!

well, Steve is off of most of the drugs he was on. However, he picked up a lung infection that has meant he has not been brought round for his own safety. So, he is 3/4 of the way out of the woods but no way clear.
The thing that has got to us all is the fact he walked into hospital a well enough man. He is the fittest person I know and at 71 that is an achievement. So it has been upsetting to see this happening.
Thanks for the concern everyone. Keep praying for Steve and everything shall be o.k.

I'm sorry but I've only just caught up with this thread - I don't really think that it should have been in BS.

Pete (protege) had warned me that Steve was going in for the op, but it was being kept a bit on the quiet. Both myself and Linda are sending him all the good vibes that we can. Also please pass on our support to Sandy.

I've known Steve since his "Swan and Sugarloaf (Croydon)" days, and also used to get to some of his sessions with Denny Wright at "The Fox". I can also remember my son (aged about 4) having a ride on one of Steve's donkeys - he's got quite a menagerie.

Please keep us up to date on his condition as much as you can, Pete.

Steve is progressing well. He is now conscious but had to have a tracheotomy to help him breath. So, we are nearly home but there is still along way to go.
Prayers still are appreciated as they have been so far. It is upsetting to see such a good person/musician in a bad way.
   Dave how about we have a benefit gig for him somewhere over this way?

Hi Pete - got any suggestions for a venue ? - I think that it would probably need to be in West London. How many people would you be expecting to accommodate ? To make it worthwhile you really need a reasonable number. Mind you I'm a little chary of organising another benefit do, as the last one (Brixton Bert) was overtaken by events and had to become "a celebration of" (or wake) - mind you it was a great evening and we raised over £330.

If the benefit is going to happen I would like to be involved.The only problem is that I am away on the canals for a week starting Saturday,so will be out of touch Catwise.It was bad enough being
Catless for the Upton weekend,but no Cat for a week is going to be difficult.

Terry, does that mean that we can be bloody rude to you for a week and you won't be able to do a thing about it ?

Seriously, though - I would think that you's need a venue capable of holding at least 100-150 to make a benefit worthwhile. Does anyone have contacts with the Brentford Art Centre place or any pubs with a large hall/function room ?

Terry, Dave, I have had it suggested by various members of "The Tap" that it might not be a good idea due to the Benbows being so feircly independent. I will enquire with Sandy but don't be amazed if the answer is no.

Back from the Tap tonight and the word is that Steve IS out of hospital,though i know he wont be singing for a while until the hole
in his throat settles down.I think we might get a few instrumental
evenings in Brentford in a week or so's time.Look out for word of the Benefit evening.

An update. On the 27th Steve went back into hospital with a suspected clot on the lung. He was treated with wolferine straight away which he doesn't react to well. However, after many tests it turned out to be fluid on the lung. Steve was out of hospital on 1st(ish) of june. He is now at home recovering slowly.
Can we still give good thoughts please as we had been doing so well!
    best regards and thanks to you all.
    Pete.

I sang "Admiral Benbow" at the Press Room last month in his honor. A valiant effort for a valiant man. I have candles burning for him and a few others. At least he is home. It is so much easier to get well at home than in a hospital where they wait for you to fall asleep so that they can stick a needle, roll you down to a test, or ask how you are doing.

He's still on my list for nightly thanksgivings, too. Glad to hear he is at home. Sins is right, it's a good place to get better.

Thanks for keeping us updated.
