I knew a guy that had seen them as well, although he had no clue who they were. He told me he used to go to random gigs most week in town and he mentioned, "I seen this band once, they were just called, uh Death, I think. The crowd was the craziest thing I've ever seen at a gig." Lucky guy, would've loved to have seen them.
As many have said, don't think it's that big a deal - just opinions. For what it's worth, I'm a big fan of both. Souness for what he did, and Burns for how he always sticks up for Rangers and talks us up. Listen to Bill Young's show Monday night and he couldn't have stuck it to celtic any more if he'd tried. Great listening. He was right, too.
