I’m so sad, because he was not only my hero, but a genuinely deep down lovely man. He was a very rare breed, and he is sorely missed. He had a truly wonderful life, and he died surrounded by his family. He held onto my shoulder once in The Bulls Head in Barnes,a jazz club, always so charming, both dry in humour and sweet in nature, A Gentleman. Truly Rest In Peace.
Just heard it on the 7pm news. So there was a reason why they didn't tell us what exactly the "successful (medical) procedure" was he had to undergo. I already feared not all was alright. Yes, end of an era. The only consolation is to think what great people he will be jamming with now up there. RIP Chawlie.
