R.I.P FRANCIS BAULD

We here at Alabama 3, were shocked and saddened to hear of the passing of Francis Bauld of Glasgow, last week.

We first met Francis and his brother John at a gig at Fat Sam's nightclub in Dundee, where there was hardly any crowd and Francis kept us all entertained during the show, with his crazy antics and great patter. After that night I would bump into Francis and John at gigs and festivals up in Scotland and they were always great company.

He will be sorely missed at the gigs and we extend our deepest condolences to him and his family at this heartbreaking and difficult time.

So long Francis, you were one of the best and I hope the big yin upstairs puts you in the same digs with Jock Stein, Jimmy Johnstone and all the other greats…

The picture here of Francis is his response to a supervisor on the job telling him to knock horsing around on the head.
