Holiday in Peru: John Peel passes away

Wednesday, October 27, 2004

There cannot be a better way to go out from this world than on holiday. Godspeed, Mr. Peel.

News can travel slow from Peru to the UK to Seattle. Influential British DJ John Peel passed away on Monday from a heart attack. I have never owned a "The Peel Sessions" album or disc of one band or many another but Peel was very much a part of my musical upbringing. The music industry has lost an important man. I've not much else to share. Read the BBC obit and go from there.
