    7th October 2013

    (17 June 1957 - 8 October 2013)

    Johnny Jukebox has smashed his last Telecaster through the television screen.

    56 is no age to be dying. With Philip’s sad and sadly not unexpected death we sorely miss the old man he should have become and who would undoubtedly have continued to exercise his active and enquiring mind with such passion, purpose and humanity.
