A place for my thoughts; yours are welcome too.
I remember when Derek Bell died. the band left him behind (Colorado, I think) for medical treatment and he never played with them again.
I've seen the Chieftains several times over the years, and I recall Bell as a gifted musician and charmingly funny guy - a comedian on the piano and a magician with a harp. When he died, they lost more than just his talent.
