    God rest the soul of John Peel - an innovative legend in British broadcasting.

    There's too much that others will say so much better than I can, so I will say I will remember him forever and leave it at that.

    Thanks for everything John.

    Echo everyone else. He was at the forefront of broadcasting. His outspoken thoughts will be certainly missed.

    Not everyones favourite - but he was a cool guy. Went his own way and spoke out about the music he believed in and liked.

    Damn shame...

    I'm glad someone posted this. The music industry is a lot poorer today.

    No one cuts it finer than Mr John Peel, did he ever get an honour from her Majesty at all? and can you believe that Lou didnt know who he was either? RIP John Peel, God bless your soul mate...

    Great to see the New Bands Stage to be named after him at Glastonbury from next year. Michael Eavis announced it the same day.


    Nice gesture.

    He was a top notch geezer, a champion of alternative music.
