Bummer. He was the only thing worth listening to on Radio 1. Some people should be made immortal for the benefit on mankind.

Sad, sad
He was the guy who turned me on to all that late '60's west coast stuff that you rarely heard on poptastic radio 1 - Love, Spirit, Grateful Dead etal, not to mention UK acts such as Fairport, John Martyn, Nick Drake and let it be said - T Rex.

Andy Kershaw called him the most important figure in British Rock, ever.

I'm inclined to agree.
I excell at not giving a shit

Heard just before paddling out for a dusk session at Saltburn on Tuesday. Spoke to him a few times + he was a genuinely nice bloke who knew what the crack was + always supported the people doing it for passion rather than profit. Helped the tiny DIY punk/HC lable i was involved in by playing stuff, promoting gigs e.t.c. He was "there" providing the soundtrack to most of the formative times of my life. He'll be badly missed. Sat in the line up on Tuesday thinking about that + realising (yet again) what everyone on here knows; you've got to follow your passion + live life fully. RIP
