The Late Paul Reekie


I only really met this guy once or twice back in the mid-90’s at the peak of the Oasis thing. On those nights in Robbie’s bar on the boundary between Edinburgh and Leith he was wearing Liam Gallagher style sunglasses and shouting out “What’s the Story, Hibees Glory? ” between sups n smokes.  I can’t say I  knew him well but he was a character for sure and this is a fine tribute which sums up the impression I got then. I can believe every word of it. It’s an entertaining read even if you’re none the wiser as to who Paul Reekie was. Sadly, he died last month.
