John Peel dead at 65.
The legendary John Peel has died while on vacation in Peru.
I was lucky enough to almost meet him twice. Low has done 2 or 3 Peel Sessions and the last one was at his home. He had a full studio in his country home and would often host bands there. His lovely wife Sheila made us dinner and he was on his way to join us but was stranded in London due to a larger than normal snowfall. It was amazing to be at his home looking at his music collection and seeing all the pictures from a long and distinguished career. You could tell that he really loved music.
Rest in peace Mr. Peel and say hi to all the dead Rock and Roll stars.
