John Peel, Rock In Peace

John Peel he dead. Shit.

I always associate John Peel with the late nights in the newspaper office on a Wednesday night, frantically typing away as the radio clanged in the background. Just the sound of his voice was enough to crack me up sometimes. Oh well, lots of tributes out there, and another won't go amiss.

Oo, and LNR have this from him. Close your eyes afterwards, and you can almost imagine him saying it."When Chris Moyles came to Radio One, I thought about strapping explosives to myself and taking us both out. I'm an old man now: it'll make little difference."

Who can possibly replace him?
