Complete legend. My first introduction was seeing him do solid air on the recent (4 years ago?), re-runs of old grey whistle test. i only found out he died through reading this blog, and now i'm feeling real crushed. cheers John.

Sorry to have to be the source for the sad news:( The Whistle test was an amazing session. Also worth checking is the clip of him playing 'couldnt love you more' from the same show with danny Thompson playing bass, sublime stuff. I read in a recent interview that he bought a Korg Kaoss pad, shame we never got to hear what he would have done with it.

He's going to be reunited with his leg now and surely partying with Davey Graham. We're losing all of our heroes at the moment...
