(An Open Letter of Contrition)

Down the Hatchet

Published in: RipRap 34 (2012)

Pages: 55-58.

Editor: Eric Forrester

Publisher: Long Beach, California, USA

BLURB:

The author apologies to Colin Hay for giving him the cold shoulder at Joe's Waterhole.


Stimulus Response:

I once saw Paul Kelly's Best Of being advertised under the hook, "Australia's greatest singer/songwriter". Self-proclaimed bumf! I'm a Colin Hay fan, personally ... although you wouldn't know it from the Joe's Waterhole incident, which, come to think of it, must have seemed especially cruel in light of our previous meeting (upon which occasion my wife took several steps backwards and greeted Colin with the immensely flattering, "Oh, no! No, I'm not a fan at all.") Sorry, Colin.
