Roddy Brass RIP

Have been told that Edinburgh (and not forgetting the rest of the world too...) Soul Giant Roddy Brass died earlier this week. A real character and one of the most inspirational figures on the scene known for his love of the music, in-your-face personality, DJing, dancing, tight suits, cider consumption and overall enthusiasm for all things soul-related. Will be much missed.

The Hamburg Soul Scene will greatly miss him. He was a part of it.

Rest in Peace Roddy

I first got to know Roddy when we DJ'd together in Switzerland. He was excellent company for the week. Thereafter met him at various venues and enjoyed his frequent visits to the 100 Club. Roddy you will be missed. R.I.P mate.

Hi there, I know I'm late to this thread but I was Roddy's neighbor for 26 years and briefly knew his father, I had no idea what a life he had, can anyone tell me what he was like or any info on him? I barely saw him and when I did he was very quiet and always kept to himself. Thanks
