I’m truly devastated with Nick’s passing. He was a great friend and a really decent, genuine person who was always happy to help others whenever he could. As Greg said, he was a special part of our listening sessions and of our lives, he will be greatly missed. My thoughts are with Alison and all of his family at this sad time.

Really shocking to read that Greg, please pass on my condolences as well. Recall chatting with you, Nick and Nigel at Owston, he was a funny guy and very approachable, a very sad loss.

Sad news indeed, another "silent key" as the hams say. I saw Pepperoni and the rest of the "Bristol gang" at the last proper show I did with Nick, Dave and Ali before the pandemic hit :(

Best wishes to Nick's family.

Yeah, Nick was one of the very few people with whom I felt an immediate connection the first time i met them. That continued the whole time I knew him. He was such a kind and warm person.

I know it’s a trite question, but why does it always seem to happen to the good people? 🙁

I'm a bit late to this thread but remember Nick being very warm and friendly at a few of the Owstons I attended. Please pass my condolences on to his family
