Upside down I see them in the fire
They squeak and roast there
Wings leap across the floor"

What is it about this guy, who hasn't recorded for 25 years, that keeps us fascinated? His music still seems like it comes from somewhere else. In recent times Findlay Brown and The White Stripes have recorded his stuff. Don is a real original.
