He certainly is hugely overrated. I was watching a BBC4 doc about him and all the talking heads seemed to focus on his 'amazing ability' to sing close to, or further away from the microphone... that was his real skill I got the feeling they all thought he was overrated too.OK - got up some courage so I'l say it
can't stand the bloke - really can;t see what the fuss is about
loads of better singers around at the time!
Fake opera singers who glide ever upwards in search of a note.

Sorry to hear about Bruce ,62 is too young. But I lost my enthusiasm for Runrig after Donnie left.Bruce Guthro. Took over as lead singer of Runrig when Donnie Munro sacked it off, his voice just didn't fit. Died recently apparently, 5 days after his 62 birthday, poor chap.
