Geordie Stuart Merrall One of The single most Important & Influential broadcasters in the history of radio...if not we wouldn't have those great Peel Sessions.
Mike Newitt Is it really that long ago. He came to BBC from the pirate radio station "Radio London", didn't he? I always wondered how he could keep himself up to date all those years. Best DJ ever.
Dave Lawrence For someone who grew up listening to music in the 70s two things always spring to mind - Area 615 "Stone Fox Chase" (OGWT) and Grinderswitch "Pickin' the Blues" for JP's late night slot. I still can't believe he's gone . . . . .

Scott Macgraw The Rolling Stones are a great band no doubt. But Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the moon has sold more lps,cd,cassettes,8 tracks than any other band in history.
Robert William Lovell If you were old enough to remember, concerts from this era were much smaller and the equipment of the day was woefully inadequate for the job at hand. Shure speaker columns of 6 grouped 5" speakers....really?!?? Take a look at the equipment here virus several years later at Woodstock, some giant strides were made. Sounding like the albums that were the beginning of the multitrack era that was to start also an issue.
Gabor Lengyel The Beatles stopped touring 'because they were not able to reproduce the sound of their records live' - that's what the PR department said. I don't believe they wanted to stop touring. Their management forced them to stop, so they could create a bigger than life image of them, create a wall of sound with orchestra and technology. They were slaves of this image. That's why they broke apart in 1970.
Wendy Cates I always heard that they were pretty dam good LIVE! I also believe they were frustrated playing to an audience that couldn't hear the band above the SCREAMING!!
Gabor Lengyel They sold their soul to the music business. If they hadn't done it, they'd have probably been able to keep touring. So sad!
Henry Ham Saw them in DC after John's infamous comparison. Some guy rushed the stage and the cops whooped his ass with Billy clubs. If that happened today just think he could sue and be a millionaire.
Gabor Lengyel From some comments here I get the impression that being a fan is like a religion. I do not agree with the belief that the Beatles were bigger than Jesus.
Zoltan Tibor Szabo-Taylor Amazing! From 62-66 and Hello Goodbye live shows... Still love them Fab Four!
Richard Williams The Rolling Stones were,are and always will be the greatest rock'n roll band in the world!!

Sam Samaras Please Kill Me: the uncensored oral history of Punk is an awesome book that tells how it all started.
Ron Koralewski Excellent, I got to see the Sex Pistols on the Filthy Lurche tour... they learned to play their instruments.. it was a great show. Even got to meet Johnny Rotten, man is he short ... I asked him for an autograph and he started the John part and had the girl next to him sign the rest (it was pretty funny). Recently I discovered the band's 999 and The Kids , and the Nuns ... why weren't they more famous, much better. Malcolm must have been a great promoter.
