London, Friday August 2nd
Darling John died peacefully last night at the Chelsea and Westminster – I was with him at the time.
I will miss him enormously, but shall remember all the wonderful times
we shared together with so many of our dear friends, and so grateful for
the music which brought us together. As Humphrey Burton says, “the very
spirit of music…unforgettable and irreplaceable”.
