Re: [Groop] OT: Lord of the Rings
Flatley is one of those Celtic dancer types that participated for a time
in the Riverdance show. He split off to do his own show, based on an
Irish Gospel song from the '50s called 'Lord of the Dance,' hence the
pun. It's a good song, but the show didn't do too well, I think.
