In 1971 I bought Live as a naive 16 year old. Nearly fell off the bed during the intro to Rope ladder. That excitement has never faded. Thanks Jon for everything. A life well run my friend

Jon, I have admired your work ever since I heard your contributions to the first Jack Bruce album, "Songs for a Tailor". The Colosseum, Tempest and Colosseum II albums are still in regular play for me along with other albums you were involved with such as Ian Carr's "Belladonna" and the United Jazz+Rock Ensemble as well as Paraphernalia. Thank you for providing part of the soundtrack to my life. You are missed already.

Always remembering to one of the greatest Drummer of the world - Jon Hiseman. I met him with Colosseum, Colosseum II and Paraphernalia and some times he signed my pictures and cds. God bless him and I am so sorry that he passed away. Rest in peace Jon!

I've been drumming since 1963 and Jon was a great influence to me and many other musicians I'm sure. A great loss to us all. Love to his family and friends.

Jon was a very special person. When I was 18 I joined the crew for Colosseum my main responsibilities were to set up Jon's kit,I stayed with him until Colosseum disbanded and then I went on to work for Tempest. In all those years I found Jon to be kind and very generous. In later years I new I could always call him and he would always be there if you needed support or help.It was a very sad day when he left us, far to young and with so much more to give. I send all my Love to his family at this difficult time, he has left a huge Legacy which will help them through this terrible loss . Rest in Peace, missing you ... Clive

I will always love Jon's amazing music. Colosseum were the best band I ever saw play live.

From the first time I saw Jon perform I was taken in by his musicianship and from that moment followed many of the projects which he performed right up to JCM and The Stables. I will never forget some of the conversations, tips and humour. Jon became the foundation for much of my own playing and often even today I think "I wonder what Jon would do here!" Cheers for many great memories and we miss you.
