I followed Jon from being a teenager to my 70th year. Mayall, Colosseum (s), Tempest, Paraphernalia and various Jazz excursions, particularly with my other heroes, Jack Bruce and DHS. A true inspiration to all musicians and a real gentleman, having time to talk to fans. Very sadly missed. Love to Barbara and his family. R.I.P.

I am so sad to read of the death of Jon Hiseman, one of THE great drummers and who I was fortunate enough to see twice with Colosseum II. I have followed his career since buying Daughter of Time from a friend back in the 70s - watching the 1994 Reunion Concert dvd next time will be extremely poignant.

Since 1969 I’ve been a fan of Colosseum and Jon and Barbara. The music has meant so much to me and is constantly played by me on one device or another. I was so pleased to be able to make 2 JCM gigs in the UK and able to speak with Jon on both occasions so what a shock when he left us! He will be missed by so many people and I’ve had numerous friends enquire about his passing. My love to all the Hiseman family and the Colosseum family, because that’s what we are!!

I first became aware of Jon Hiseman in 1972, when I heard his dynamic drumming and musicianship on the doubledecker "Colosseum Live", an almost physical tour de force (if this makes any sense). Now he is gone - - and yet he is still here with us. I listen to Rope Ladder and am comforted. Peace, peace.

I was so saddened to hear of Jon's death. Although I was aware of him as a member of John Mayall's band, he first came to the forefront of my attention with Colosseum, but the greatest joy he gave me was with UJRE, a collaboration of musicians that in my view has never in this country received the praise and recognition it deserved. And thanks to modern technology I have also been able to admire his work before Colosseum with the New Jazz Orchestra and Graham Bond. Life can be unfair at times, as he plainly left with so much still to do, but we, as mere listeners, will still be able to remember him every time we play a track on which he plays. Life passes but the music lives on. To Barbara, Marcus and Anna, and his extended family, my sincere condolences. Jon was greatly loved and respected for his contribution to music in his various capacities. If there is any sort of afterlife there is one hell of a band there now.

I have written a tribute to Jon that can be found at drew5571.wordpress.com that tells of my introduction to his music. Upon reading about Jon”s illness, I was introduced and reintroduced to the music he played. The album he did with Clem Clempson and Mark Clarke is a great introduction to his work. My favorite songs are “ The Kettle”, “ Foyers Of Fun”, “ Yeah, Yeah, Yeah” and “ Rivers”. I bought “ Colosseum Live” and was reintroduced to “ Lost Angeles”. I bought the biography of Jon Hiseman” called “ Playing The Band”. I liked his attitude about music and advice about drumming. He was a man humble about his achievements but proud of his family. May God give you comfort, healing, hope and strength. His playing with Colosseum and other bands have given me so much enjoyment. I will continue to keep playing his music. I will play the bands. This is what he would have wanted.
