John Peel Dead at Age 65

John_peel
Unbelievably we have lost another great champion of rock and roll as the BBC have reported that legendary radio DJ John Peel has passed away at age 65. The BBC link is a great place to start for those of you unaware of the impact that this man had on rock and roll over the last 40 years or so. Another true music fan has left us. Rest in peace John Peel. You made radio worth listening to.
UPDATE! John started a record label in the late sixties that folded in 1972 called Dandelion Records. Click on the link for some great information on this pioneering indie label of the past. Also, the Guardian Unlimited has an excellent tribute page with a lot of great links and information. More reaction can be found at the NME. A great talent lost for sure.
Later.
