Ten years ago today (29th January 2009) the world lost the most innovative singer-songwriter and guitarist it had ever seen.

John’s passing was announced to the world here on his website, “With heavy heart and an unbearable sense of loss we must announce that John died this morning.” The incredible outpouring of emotion that followed showed how much he was admired and loved.

Charismatic, uncompromising and charming John enjoyed life to the full. Sometimes chaotic and reckless he was a huge talent and we are fortunate to have a legacy of wonderful music. John shared his life with us through his music.

We all miss ‘Our John’, in our own personal way, we miss our friend and we miss the gigs! Today of course our hearts reach out to John’s loved ones and family, their loss is so much greater than ours.

“I don’t want to know about evil, only want to know about love.”

Play your favourite album and celebrate “the cool bit” – the music…
