Just got the awful news that Grant McLennan co founder of the Go Betweens has died at home in Brisbane on May 6, 2006. I first met Grant when David Westlake and I supported The Go B’s at Wolverhampton Poly in 1987. We were in absolute awe of Robert and Grant – thought they were the Bees Knees – still do. I was barely out of my teens, but Grant immediately put me at ease. He always referred to me as ‘part of the Go Betweens family’ which was very sweet of him and made me feel good. I missed out on the chance to catch up with him last time he was in London. I won’t get the chance again. He was a lovely chap and a great songwriter. He will be sorely missed.
