Luke Kelly: The Performer
Paul Andrew Haried | Mesa, Arizona USA | 03/04/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Luke Kelly, May G'd rest his soul, is a relative of mine. even though he died such a tragic death due not to alcohol abuse as some suppose but from a brain tumour on stage during a performance in the Cork Opera House. He was the socialst of the group and believed in owning little as possible, "even if someone needed a chair he would give up his only chair in his place to that person and he did" said the leader of the band Ronnie Drew. Luke Kelly will always be remembered for his political savy and rustic charm with his introspective nostalgic words and voice. His songs are very sentimental and nostalgic due to the fact that he lived alone or was a loner and yet his voice captivated audiences and gained a notiriety of fans. I think it is about time a dvd came out about him it is long overdue. If your a dubliners fan you will be a fan of this dvd of luke kelly."

"Luke Kelly died of a brain tumor in 1984. Ciaran Burke had a stroke on stage but died several years later in 1988. I would think if you were a relative of Luke Kelly, you might get your facts straight.

At any rate, if you're a fan of Luke Kelly and the original Dubliners, you can't go wrong with this item."
