Yes, this would have been Charlie's 66th birthday.

Let's all raise a glass to him this evening.

We miss you, Charlie.

This guy called Charlie Tumahai could certainly play some notes on his guitar couldn't he? Also, whenever I watch the Be Bop Deluxe DVD at the BBC and see Mr Tumahai smiling, I smile too. I lost touch with his music after I discovered his work with Be Bop Deluxe. I did read that he became a health and keep fit fan. Anyway a great musician and I'm sure a great guy too.

Had first row at the Palladium in NYC for Be Bop and I will also always recall his big smile when thinking of him. Most musicians just don't smile when they play but Charlie seemed to be always be smiling and enjoying himself. Once again will try to find a couple pictures and post them.
