Classic “Peelisms”

I Love Music has some great reader contributed John Peel quotes that are fun to read. Two of my favourites:

On the digital audio revolution:

Somebody was trying to tell me that CDs are better than vinyl because they don’t have any surface noise. I said, "Listen, mate, *life* has surface noise."

On the Dwarves:

"If hero worship were sex, they’d all be carrying my babies".

Mojo Magazine also has a message board where people can post their thoughts about John. He will also be featured in a 10 page tribute in the next issue of Mojo. The December issue of Word magazine also has a feature on John that may be worth checking out.
