how sad - I have always admired Ruby for her courage and vitality. Her performance last year was memorable, despite her being unwell.

I was honoured to see the Black Arm Band show a couple of times.

Vale, Ruby

my heart goes out to Archie, who wore his love for Ruby so openly

"I know I'm supposed to be traumatised by it all. But why should I be traumatised when I look at my life? I think people who think about these things too much traumatise themselves. I just look back and think, 'Gee, what a long walk'. It's made me strong."

Ruby and Archie were the highlight of last year's BF for me. In particular Ruby telling the story about writing "Down City Streets" - it was the first song she wrote and she was embarrassed to show it to Archie. thanks god he found it to make sure one of the best ever australian songs got recorded. There's not a song writer who wouldn't be proud to write a song like that, let alone at their first attempt at writing.
