Van Morrison plays Leadbelly


Van Morrison's first performance as a child was "Good Night, Irene", and he later recorded the song with Lonnie Donegan. In the title track to Morrison's Astral Weeks, the lyrics that refer to Lead Belly: "Talkin' to Huddie Ledbetter/Showin' pictures on the wall/" seem to be based on Morrison's real life custom of carrying around a poster of Lead Belly and hanging it on the wall wherever he was living. This was revealed in a Rolling Stone interview in 1978, where Morrison refers Lead Belly as "my guru". He also mentions Lead Belly in the lyrics to his 1982 semi-autobigraphical song "Cleaning Windows" alongside other blues musicians that inspired Morrison in his youth.
