Austin was a typical small town in Pat's childhood and he enjoyed living in Tarrytown (the country back then) where his family had some acreage. "Pat" 1935 to April 14, 2019 Born in Austin Texas to Virginia Holland Laird and Langston Smith in the old Seton Hospital, Pat was raised in Tarrytown and he attended a private kindergarten, then Pease Elementary, University Junior High, Schreiner Military School and graduated from Austin High in 1954.But behind all the chattering-class hype and middlebrow fanfare, there is something lacking when Albarn launches his new “folk opera” Doctor Dee at the Manchester International Festival, an eight-show prelude to its longer run next year at the ENO in London as part of the 2012 Cultural Olympiad.Taking in mummers and Morris dancers, queens and magicians, ghosts and angels, Doctor Dee is a Pagan-punk pageant stretching from the necromantic dark ages to the New Romantic era.Then Gorillaz went supernova, proving that with enough musical chemistry and marketing genius, lightning can strike twice.An audacious Chinese opera and a promiscuous, prolific string of collaborations followed.Smith, of Johnson City and Mary Paige Garrett of Johnson City and Jennifer Marino of Wimberley, Texas.




History is generally written by broadsheet-reading Blur fans, not the red-top Gallagher massive.He wanted to spend his last days at home on his ranch and that is exactly how he did it.His children and his wife wrote this obit and we hope he would have liked it but for once we all had the last word on Dad. He was more than a husband and father, he was friend, confidant and fixer of all things.Stephen Dalton at the Manchester International Festival finds Damon "the Martin Amis of Britpop" Albarn's musical about the life of Dr John Dee to be a flawed production.Perhaps he should call intended collaborator Alan Moore to help him fix it?
