John Peel, RIP

Writing about web page http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/tv_and_radio/3955289.stm

This seems almost insignificant given events in Thailand, but John Peel - the BBC radio broadcaster - has died whilst on holiday in Peru. The BBC have an obituary up on their website for him already and Google News has plenty of links with more about John, his life and career.

  1. So so sad. I will really miss his Radio shows and the famous peel sessions. Probably one of the most influential people in music ever!

  2. Yes its very sad. 'Home Truths' : Radio 4, Saturdays was sheer brilliance. As they were commenting yesterday, no-one else will fill his shoes.

    Isn't it funny – it seems that everyone grew up with him!

    Sorry John I have to admit I did turn you off quite frequently when you got into playing really wierd stuff on Sunday nights with guitar rifts that went on for 3 days, but your influence was undeniable. Rock on!
