Sir John Peel RIP

I was going to launch the assault I've been trailing on a book I chortled my way through last Saturday, but the news of John Peel's sudden death puts that back a day or so.

There's a slew of tributes here, and links to other bits and pieces about his life and work.

The truth is, if you love rock and roll and have even a modicum of moxie (and thus a few thousand songs on your shelves, in your iPod or wherever), he probably kick-started or at the very least championed the careers of dozens of the artists that have soundtracked your life.

Still, Rock and Roll is here to stay, and my usual bile will be back on the beat tomorrow. For as the great man put it: "It is much easier to write about things you don't like than things you do."

ADDENDUM: in the few days since his passing, I've come across this tribute from Douglas Wolk, and, in the spirit of the man, the John Peel Sweet Eating Game - the rules for which are here. And if I may amend the ends words used there, John Peel was the best DJ that Radio 1 ever has had and - judging by the way things are now - ever will have.

Right: here's another one by the mighty Fall . . . at the wrong speed.
