stuART MCLEAN ... vinyl cafe or DivininG the gREAT cANADIAN HAIKU.
Stuart's main claim to fame is his Poetry Slam Championship 'Ribbon' from the Cafe Deux Soleis, on Commercial Drive, Vancouver B.C. 'Stew Man' as he is known in the east end got in a heated argument with leonard cOHEN over who had the most poetic HAIKU. All that is known is they both took out their old rolled up grade 11 French Exams, and as they say " fought until the verbs became nouns!" ...... really!!! .... "no wonder no one knows what poetry is?" ... Peter Gzowski Jan. 31, 1948.
