What is commendable about modern Ireland? Governed by the greedy,with huge gap between rich and poor,crimelords kill with impunity,atheism rife,fawning to British and American governments?

You could say that about most countries though.

And there's worse things people could be than atheist.

Aye. At least we've got the atheism bit right.

Yeah, but you'll still be either an atheist prod or an atheist taig.

Buddy Holly's guitarist, Tommy Allsup, 85.

He was the one that lost the infamous coin toss to determine who would get a seat on the plane that ended up crashing and killing Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper, in 1959.

Very nice man - met him when he was touring with Kevin Montgomery in Manchester. He also spend a lot of time playing with the Bob Wills band. Waylon Jennings was also meant to be on that plane but he swapped with the Big Bopper.
