Pretty raunchy/trashy for a woman associated with an easy listening bossa nova classic as breezy as The Girl From Ipanema. It's more like something a Warrant groupie would do.  B)

 

 

I just noticed the drummer is banging on actual cherry pies at 0:50. lol.

   Geddy    touches on the subject of the future (or lack thereof) of Rush:   ♥♥

 

... Well, I'd say I can't really tell you much other than that there are zero plans to tour again. As I said earlier, we're very close and talk all the time, but we don't talk about work. We're friends, and we talk about life as friends. I can't really tell you more than that, I'm afraid. I would say there's no chance of seeing Rush on tour again as Alex, Geddy, Neil. But would you see one of us or two of us or three of us? That's possible. ...

Valium posted some great Fairport Convention clips in another thread.

That led me to this story of Sandy Denny - one who possessed one the most amazing voices in popular music.

She was a tortured soul to say the least:

Linda Thompson would later note that Denny "really started going downhill in 1976," and demonstrated increasing levels of both manic and depressive behavior.[23] Learning that she was pregnant did little to mellow Denny's reckless lifestyle, which was heightened by increasing depression, mood swings, and the unravelling of her "tumultuous" marriage to Trevor Lucas.[23] She abused drugs and alcohol while pregnant with her daughter, Georgia, who was born prematurely in July 1977.[2] Much like her moods, Denny's interest towards her daughter appeared to oscillate between obsessive and unconcerned; friends recalled both frantic, middle-of-the-night phone calls about teething, as well as Sandy "crashing the car and leaving the baby in the pub and all sorts of stuff."[2][23]

Friends would later note that Denny had a history of purposefully throwing herself off bar stools and down flights of stairs in order to get a reaction. Several remembered this behavior as "Sandy's party trick," while Dave Pegg's wife Chris stated, "She certainly did it in my house and it could be a very dramatic gesture, like self-harming. She could do it without hurting herself usually but I had a feeling there would be one time too many."[24] Those who knew Denny said that her increasing level of alcohol abuse in the last years of her life led to an increasing number of falls (both accidental and on purpose), resulting in a growing number of injuries.[24]

In late March 1978, while on holiday with her parents and baby Georgia in Cornwall, Denny was injured when she fell down a staircase and hit her head on concrete.[25] Following the incident, she suffered from intense headaches; a doctor prescribed her the painkiller dextropropoxyphene, a drug known to have fatal side effects when mixed with alcohol.[2] On 1 April, several days after the fall in Cornwall, Denny performed a charity concert at Byfield.[25] The final song she performed was "Who Knows Where the Time Goes?"[24]

At some unknown point during the first half of April 1978, Denny suffered yet another major fall at her home in Byfield.[24] On 13 April, concerned about his wife's erratic behavior and fearing for his daughter's safety, Trevor Lucas left the UK and returned to his native Australia with their child, leaving Sandy without telling her.[2][26][27] He sold their Leyland Princess car in order to raise funds for the journey.[24]

On discovering Lucas' departure, Denny went to stay at the home of her friend Miranda Ward. During this time, Denny apparently set up an appointment to speak with a doctor about her headaches, and also intended to get advice about her alcohol addiction.[28] At some point after 8am on April 17, Denny fell into a coma.[2][25] Ward was out of the house at the time, and had asked her friend Jon Cole (of the band The Movies) to check in on Denny. Cole entered the home at 3pm, and found Denny unconscious at the foot of the staircase which led to the second floor of the house.[28] She was rushed by ambulance to Queen Mary's Hospital in nearby Roehampton.[28]

On April 19, she was transferred to Atkinson Morley Hospital in Wimbledon.[29] After receiving news that Denny was in a coma, Trevor Lucas returned from Australia. Upon his arrival at the hospital, doctors informed him that Denny was effectively brain-dead and her condition would not improve. He granted their recommendation to turn off life-support machines, and Sandy Denny died at 7:50pm on April 21, 1978.[28] Her death was ruled to be the result of a traumatic mid-brain haemorrhage and blunt force trauma to her head.[2]

The funeral took place on 27 April 1978 at Putney Vale Cemetery. After the vicar had read Denny's favourite psalm, Psalm 23, a piper played "Flowers of the Forest", a traditional song commemorating the fallen of Flodden Field. The inscription on her headstone reads:

The Lady
Alexandra Elene
MacLean Lucas
(Sandy Denny)
6·1·47 – 21·4·78
