I was saddened to hear that the amazingly talented Patrick Flynn has died suddenly in the United States.
Patrick had a career that straddled everything from composing rock musicals to conducting symphony orchestras.
My connection to him was his work with Reg Livermore on the musical Ned Kelly which I am very fond of.
He was a lyrical voice down a distant telephone line.
I am sorry he never saw any of the revivals in recent years.
The Sydney Morning Herald has published a wonderful obit which you will find a fascinating read.
