RIP indeed, maverick, genius, provocateur, 100% Salfordian in every sense.

Funnily enough, never liked his music. But too abrasive for my taste but I did like his attitude. A true Manc curmudgeon. Much like Eyes & Chubby....

An absolute once off. Only saw The Fall once, at ATP in Minehead in 2010, he was the highlight of the weekend by far.

Saw him again with Gorillaz later that year and he was the highlight of the night

They say he was a genius. Seems more like an aggressive, drug using, alcoholic to me.

But maybe I can't identify a genius.

I grew up within walking distance of his house so I would like to like him.
