John Peel, RIP
My wife and I both cried yesterday when we learned that John Peel died,
tragically and prematurely
at the age of 65.
For those of you who don't know John's work, he was an incredible
of all things creative in the
new pop fields over thirty plus years.................from punk to new
to jungle to two step to whatever,
he was constantly exposing brand new bands to British audiences. I
have the cassette recording of when he played Bill's and my 80's
new wave band , Tao Chemical one night on British Television.
Of all the wonderful things that happened to us, being played by John
was the biggest honor and greatest thrill I had in that band.
he will be sorely missed. I pray that his spirit lives on in all the
people he inspired................all the people he exposed to new
audiences.............in all the up and coming young artists that are
to break new ground with their love of music.
John Peel, RIP it up wherever you are and thanks!!!!! We love you.
