  • crap news on both counts. I never knew much about Japan but fell in love with Mick Karn's fretless bass playing on Bill Nelson's Chimera album and other projects, since. Let's hope 2011 doesn't have too much of this sort of thing in store ! :( Life does seem too short

    Very sad indeed. Only consolation is that Gerry will no longer have to fight off his demons.
    Have been a fan since the City to City album.
    Great songwriter and had a very special voice.

    My favourite song? None of the usual suspects. For me it has to be The Right Moment. Beautiful song.
