This time spent with Glen had an important impact on Keith who says this is the moment he first admitted to anyone he wrote songs and hearing his hero sing a song he had recently written really showed Keith that he had something of artistic merit to offer. The Clare native can certainly never be accused of rushing into his love affair with song writing, instead choosing to take his time and hone his craft.
