Every once in a while…..

Something comes along and shakes you out of your usual habits, it rattles you and makes you think about life.
I was driving to Newcastle when I heard on the radio that John Peel had died. It was like a punch in the stomach, all the memories started to come back, sat in my bedroom listening to his show, hearing new bands and forming musical opinions that have stayed with me ever since. I have to admit that over the last few years I haven’t taken enough notice of the music he was playing, that’ll be the prejudices of nearing 40.
A lot of people owe him a debt of gratitude, and I am one of them.
