Writer, photographer, environmental campaigner and "known troublemaker" Dave Walsh is the founder of Blather.net, described both as "possibly the most arrogant and depraved website to be found either side of the majestic Shannon River", and "the nicest website circulating in Ireland". Half Irishman, half-bicycle. He lives in southern Irish city of Barcelona.
I had the pleasure of meeting Desmond Leslie when he organized a recital of Handels messiah at St. Thomas’Church in the 1970s.I found him to be a delight in his devotion to musical progression and clearly would regard him to be of the stature of Reich, Moog, and Walter “Nee” Wendy Carlos. A little known fact about Leslie was his invention of the rotating speaker for the hammond organ. A sound that was to become iconic in sixties rock music.
