My heart goes out to Viv, and Charlene, and the rest of John's family.

 

I'm glad you've found peace now my brother.

Speachless.

 

I still have the old carpet covered record box he made in the 90s.

 

I think about the first time we`d been to John and Vivs house in Bolton.

 

So sad.

And that was the picture conjured up in my mind when I read the sad news...Dave, John and John at the 100 Club during the 90's in their usual area behind Dave's sales boxes, having a laugh.

Think of the good times people.

RIP John

Very very sorry to hear that John had passed away after his recent illness.

 

I have so many great memories of John over the years with Mr Weston and Mr Rimmer in tow and usually with drink involved we had some brilliant laughs.

 

I also remember the Connoisseur weekender, Cleethorpes and loads of other places we used to meet up with great fondness.

 

I also have one of Johns bomb proof record boxes from the 90s and it is still going strong.

 

A real gentleman who will be sadly missed.

 

Our thoughts go out to Viv and family at this very difficult time
