The other day, in our local paper, John was finally given his due - his photo appeared next to a picture of the ancient Greek philosopher Plato, with an article on the most influential figures of Western culture. Shame my scanner is not working, otherwise I would have tried to share this.
Otherwise, I have little to add to what you guys have said - I will always remember John as a great musical talent and one of the few who dared speak out on the true evils of our society. I hope he has found the peace he looked for in vain when he was alive.
I've just noticed - my post no. 1699 for John - that's some sort of - however humble and trivial - tribute.
It's the start of a journey
To a much better place
And this wasn't bad
So a much better place
Would have to be special...
