Shocked to discover this news belatedly, when searching to see if he was still recording. Priveliged to promote a concert by JH & co in Folkestone in the err ..70s. An exceptional musician. Respect

I was privileged to see Paraphernalia a number of times, twice at Holland Park (GLC) benefit gigs and then probably 8 times at the Stables + the OU when Jon was ill and Gary Husband covered for him. I also loved Colosseum and Colosseum II. Jon was the complete package for me. Subtle and exuberant , fast and powerful with fantastic solos. To see him play at close quarters was such a pleasure. Sincere condolences to all his family and friends.

I was present at the Pizza Express gig in London earlier this year, another great night. I feel sick for his family at the moment. Goodbye you gentleman, I'm going to miss you and the live gigs. LEGENDARY PLAYER

Very sorry to just learn of the death of Jon Hiseman. I believe he was one of the best rock and roll drummers of all time. And Colosseum, which he was largely responsible for forming, was one of the best groups of all time. Jon, thanks so much for all the music you did. It has provided me with endless hours of enjoyment. You may be gone from earth, but you and your great contribution to music will never be forgotten.

Unfortunately, I just heard about Jon's death today and I am still quite shocked. For me Jon was the measure of all things on drums over 40 years - no matter if he performed with Colosseum, Paraphenalia or the United Jazz & Rock Ensemble. Like all fans, I will always remember him and the fantastic concerts at which I was fortunate to enjoy him. Rest in peace, Jon.

Colosseum was my first love. not sure where I heard them first, perhaps on John Peel's show. Anyhow I saw them in the Maryland Club in Glasgow, one of the first gigs with Chris Farlowe. He brought on a music stand! This was on a Vertigo package tour. Very soon afterwards they played at an all night Uni gig in Glasgow. The final time was at the Bingo Hall in Paisley High Street. What a band. I treasure these concerts. And one of their songs will be played at my funeral when it is my time. Condolences to his family and band colleagues. Above all THANKS

This is a sad moment in our lives to lose Jon. My thoughts and love go to Barbara, Ana and Marcus. Jon's energy, talent and drive was infectious and he made me reverent of his incredible giving nature. Thank you Jon for being so wonderful, for filling my life with great aspirations by teaching me what a truly great musician is all about. You will be missed.

I am greatly saddened to read tonight that the outstandingly talented Jon Hiseman had passed away two months ago. I had heard nothing in the media about Jon's passing. My elder son and I have been lifelong fans of Jon's enormous talent, influence and unrivalled musical skills. I feel that there will be many who feel his loss as keenly as I/we do. Our heartfelt condolences to Barbara, Marcus and Anna.

Jon's legacy will live on in some amazing music as I think back to my student days in America in the early 70's when I first discovered Colosseum. The live double album will be listened to by me with a heavy heart. Barbara, I hope you can carry on making more great music in his memory!
