RIP: Johnny Rogan

Such sad news. I'm not a Byrds man but I bought Johnny's Neil Young: The Definitive Story Of His Musical Career back in 1982 and have picked up quite a few of his other books since.

His books were always so easy to read and he always struck me as having a genuine love of the music. 67, speaking as a 68 yr old, is no age at all.

RIP.

Only read "Morrissey and Marr" and it was an excellent read about the main men in my favourite band. RIP, Johnny, and thank you

Fucking hell. I saw this without my glasses initially and thought it said Johnny Rotten.

Very sad. Speaking as a Byrds man, his books on that subject - the ones I've read, anyway - are splendid. His Kinks book is probably the best on that subject, too. RIP.

The Byrds book is great. Way too young. And part of a dying breed to begin with, so it's a double loss.

RIP.

Ah. I was at college with him in the early 80s. Very intense fellow.

Sad news.
But February made me shiver
With every paper I'd deliver
Bad news on the doorstep
I couldn't take one more step

Yeah, I've heard that from a lot of people. I enjoyed the Van Morrison book, as well. Not the easiest topic!
