  1. The two got together at the Whiskey Go Go in LA for a night when they both were really young doing Gloria…Van and Jim….I read where Van climbed up to the lights to the top of the stage….I would have loved to seen that.

  2. No you haven’t missed much at all. TheVan Morrison song…it’s my 2nd favorite of his behind Tupelo Honey…it’s a good one.

  3. I heard about Piaf in a Van Morrison song for the first time…Saint Dominic’s Preview.
    Very cool video.
