Yeah, I know, Everyone on Moblog has posted their own tribute to the great man,
but the man was a legend to me and I wanted to note it on my page.

When I lived in Glasgow I was in a band called Peptone. John played our records
from time to time, and even wrote us a letter saying how much he liked our
music. They were great times, and that letter meant more than any other review.

Thanks John, RIP.

He meant so much to so many different types of people, its going to be a proper night of mourning.

If anyone on this Earth had another 20 years in them, it was him. He'll be sadly missed.

I'm still quite amazed - and touched - by the reaction. My phone has been buzzing all afternoon with friends passing the news between each other.

And the way Radio 1 are handling it is quite brilliant. I've never heard Colin Murray sound so sincere!

Colin Murray's playing the QMU tomorrow night. I'm almost certain he'll be playing Teenage Kicks at some point, which I'd imagine will be fairly emotional.

Much sadness.

I was in one of the many unknown bands who sent him a demo copy. I'll never forget hearning him play it. I got a chance to thank him a few years ago working at Glasto.

I've heard teenage kicks being played every hour since noon... and I'm still not tired of hearing it :)

the sheer breadth of his taste in music makes the word ecclectic seem somehow insufficient, not only did he bring many many fantastic bands, from all genres to the world, but he did it with humility....the world of music will never be the same. From punk to hiphop, he fed our nation with the finest new music, for 40 years.

Another favourite quote from john - when asked "What's your favourite type of music?" his reply was:

"Anything I've not heard yet!"

I'm finding it difficult to think of him with anything other than a wide warm smile on my face - eyeryone's memory of him is so happy, and songs like communication breakdown are being played... probably still influencing new music lovers, even after his death.

I remember staying up late to listen to his show when I was a nipper with my Dad. It's always sad when a good person passes on.
