One of the good guys.
that's a shame
Undoubtedly the most influential DJ in the UK, possibly the world, and certainly on me. It's a cliche but his shows were the background of my growing-up years, playing music that just wasn't covered my mainstream shows (until they caught up!).
He played everything first, often demos from unsigned bands, thus guaranteeing that every night he had a captive audience of musicians hoping to hear their own tape.
It was all refreshingly un-gimicky, done for the love of music rather than the desire to boost ratings. Without him it is almost certain that many artists we now take for granted would never have reached the public's attention.
that is really sad. he will be missed. i hope there's one huge f***ing memorial concert for him, featuring some of the bands he's helped out over the years. if anyone wants to trade a "best of peel sessions" mix with me, i'm all about it.
