So sad to hear of the loss of, as Kev discribed "A True Legend". Many happy memories and times with this guy, I always said to Keith that he should have been where Kev Roberts was and the reason he wasn;t was - too many Slow horses, fast women and that "One more record".

I will always be grateful to him for giving my son Ben, his "break" at DJing when Keith promoted the George.

RIP my old friend😔

Nige - Tina & Ben.

I have just heard the sad news of Keith's passing. I was supposed to be at Kings Hall for his Birthday, sadly not to be, but I did call him and wish him well. He gave me so much pleasure as a teenager spinning sounds at the Top Rank Hanley and the Heavy Steam Machine. He was made up a couple of years back when I sold him my demo of Bok to Bach. Keith, I will miss you, please take you place at the highest alter of Northern Soul and continue spinning sounds with Martin Ellis and Blue Max. We are being robbed of making more special memories. Condolences to all his family and friends. KTF.

As been first introduced to the northern scene in the Potteries in the early 1970’s I’ve never known Keith Minshull not being a part of the local and national scene.

Last saw him a few weeks ago at the Outdoor Record Fair in Newcastle Under Lyme.

A true Northern Soul icon

RIP Keith Minshull

Very Sad news. I have,nt seen Keith for some years now, but if anyone lived up to the saying - Keep the faith- it was Keith. He was there at the beginning and never faltered. Big part of my early niter years, mid to late 70,s. Thoughts with his family and friends. RIP

Sad news indeed.

I first recall him from my last few weeks of the Torch, then Kidsgrove town Hall, Tiffs Newcastle and more recently Alsager civic. His DJ spots were truly great ,uptempo and a dancers delight.

Cantancerous he may have been , but hey ho...........you didn`t sit down too much during his spot on the decks. A true gent and a legend.

R.I.P.

Very sad news. Spent many hours in the company of Keith and his first wife all those years ago.

Sold him many a tune at the Torch and met up again around 2000 and we kept in regular contact since, the last being a long phone call around 3 months ago when he had a good old reminisce about the Torch, scene in general and record hunting trips.

RIP my old mate

Remember meeting Keith in the mid-90's my first thoughts were that he looked like a not too friendly Dude, I was wrong, another Legend departs...R.I.P. Sir.
