If you get a chance to speak to Davy, please extend to him my warmest regards.
I'd like to add that I have (almost) no doubt that the whistle Davy plays is not an Overton but is, as he claims, one he built. What I have always considered a mystery is why, after all of his statements that he makes & sells whistles for other players, have I NEVER heard from anyone who owns one. I would also bet that he has made and sold a few. And I also bet he truly intends to do more of that. I bet he just can't find time.
I don't hate Davy and I have no reason to dislike him. It just turns out to be the unfortunate truth that the only contact I've had with him was a bit, well, unfortunate....
Anybody who can play like that (not to mention write "The Dreaming of the Bones") has the spark of the divine in him/her. That collaboration with Sinead (who, by the way, was my first wife), is exquisite.
Oops, turn irony back on.
Love and peace,
