    Default RIP Jon Hiseman

    It is a shock that I learn of the death of Jon Hiseman of Colosseum.

    I was lucky enough to see him perform very recently in April under the guise of JCM.
    To say he was good is an understatement, a sad loss after a distinguished career.

    That's a tragic loss. Saw him a couple of times back in the early eighties when he was performing with Barbara Thompson's Paraphernalia. Was always completely blown away by his technique and control.

    A mainly digital setup with a musical amplifier and endearing 1970's speakers. A CD player that hardly ever gets used and a turntable that is good enough to remind my how enjoyable my old vinyl is. Some cables and things.

    I've just ordered the JCM album 'Heroes', that was ironically dedicated to late friends in the music industry.

    I remember them well enough. Not really my cup of tea, much like ELP and ELO to me. Not far enough 'out there'! Shame he died though.

    Colosseum were one of the pioneers of jazz rock.
    Valentyne Suite by Colosseum is a fine album.
    John was an amazingly good drummer and nice guy.
    Can't believe he has gone after only seeing him at a gig in April.
    Very sad.

    Sad loss.
    Colosseum were a great band. Saw them a few times and always loved them

    Worth listening to all their albums, in particular
    Those who are about to die salute you
    Valentyne Suite
    Colosseum Live

    RIP Jon
