John Lawton R.I.P.

I am sorry to hear of the passing of John Lawton. I met him in 1975 when he sang on The Butterfly Ball concert at the Albert Hall. Ronnie Dio was unavailable for the live show and John bravely stepped to save the day. As one can imagine, replacing Ronnie was a huge challenge, but John was more than capable. As an adjunct to the album, he recorded Little Chalk Blue before the concert.
