Thread: Luke Kelly documentary

  1. #1

    Default Luke Kelly documentary

    There's a really good documentary on Luke Kelly on RTE at the moment if anyone's interested. Really good, has touched on his politics a bit already.

    He was a great singer. Raglan Road is on the RTE archives and can be accessed easily.

    Very enjoyable documentary... would have loved more archive footage of luke himself being interviewed but I presume little exists
    The clips of Jesus Christ Superstar were hilarious
    What a voice though , what a voice !

    Enjoyed the documentary, but could have done with less of the 'personalities' e.g. Bono, Gerry Adams, Christy Moore (who had the balls to imply Luke ended up being a sell out) and wish they stuck to the people who knew him really well.

    Yeah, really love that doc. It was on a couple of months ago.

    Still can't believe that idiot Bono is still claiming to be from Ballymun.

    I spent a night on a mattress on the floor of Luke Kellys basement once when I was a small child. Left me with a bit of a phobia for earwigs! The basement was crawling with them.

    Was that in Dartmouth Square? I lived beside him there in the early eighties when I was a student.
