    John Peel R.I.P

    Discussion started by Locofanclub - Oct 26, 2004

    A Rarity for me to scribble in white, but its a sad day for all music lovers within the UK, or for people who appreciate everything from Indie through to Punk and back. Radio 1 DJ John Peel died today at the age of 65. The man who loved his music as much as his beloved Liverpool FC.He played anything an deverything on his 1FM show, and was one of those blokes who you could sit down with, over a pint, and talk with. Met him once in Manchester,top man he was, and his death is a sad loss for music.

    Sad to see him go, he was probably one of my favourite things on the radio

    He appreciated good music, whether or not it had mass appeal - and since I was travelling every Saturday morning, I've been listening to Home Truths for about 4 years every Saturday now... I'll probably realise how much I miss it now that it's gone

    RIP

    Rise in Power John. You've left a big hole mate. You will be missed (you are already).

    Conspiracy theory: Radio 1 had him asassinated because they need a slot for another 'yoof' or R(ap) 'n' B(ullshit) show.

    I had a check through my entire music collection and virtually everything in there is linked to him in some way. The list of bands and musical styles he gave exposure to is simply mind-blowing. The guy was one of a kind on the airwaves and always seemed like a thoroughly decent bloke too. It's a shame, it really is.

    The only "good" to come out of this tragedy for me is that I now have NO reason to listen to radio 1 ever again.

    RIP John Peel.
