He was so much more than a singer - one of the great musical adventurers.  I'm a huge fan, and so very sad that he's gone.

I only saw Johnny Dickinson a couple of times, but I wish it had been more, he was so good.

And Scott Walker, what a voice. My Ship Is Coming In would make my Top 20 favourite ever songs.

RIP

Saw The Beat at weyfest a few years ago. Roger was leaping around the stage like a lunatic. Seemed to have more energy than his son. Very enjoyable band.

Not heard them, but sad nonetheless.

Both members of the Liverpool band Her's and their tour manager have been killed in a crash in the US

Duo Stephen Fitzpatrick, 24, and Audun Laading, 25, as well as manager Trevor Engelbrektson, died while travelling to a gig in California on Wednesday, their record label Heist or Hit said.
