Mi pésame a la señora Thompson y familia. El Sr. Hiseman me regaló en su momento el libro Playing the band por motivos que no vienen al caso y le estoy muy agradecido; aparte de ser un auténtico gigante de los tambores. Lo que es seguro para mi es que él está ahora en un lugar mejor. Gracias por todo. Hasta siempre.

Valentyne Suite is a seminal album from my youth. In this and the other Colosseum albums Jon's drumming was technically great, controlled yet at the same time distinctive, driving and inspirational....and live WOW ! At the same time Dick Heckstall Smith took my attention then Barbara and Paraphernalia too, nearly 25 years later I took up the sax myself. I have in recent years fufilled my ambition to play sax in a band and its all down to Jon and Barbara and their band colleagues. Thanks a million for your inspiration and the boundless pleasure you have given over many years. RIP Jon and much love to you Barbara.....both class acts in every sense of the word xxx

My condolences to Barbara, the family and of course Clem, Mark, Chris and Dave. I loved Colosseum from the Those Who Are About to Die Salute You album and was fortunate to see them at The Holywood Festival at Keele University way back on 24 May 1970! https://www.keele.ac.uk/thekeeleoralhistoryproject/thehollywoodfestivalandmusicatkeele/?fbclid=IwAR29tuiQc3XFIeOZM2ILnrHZtbBTZB_fxX9GqUdgxEeBVP3OwJbe5cljYrI I have all their albums and Jon's book. Jon was a superb drummer and the intro to LA is the only drum solo I know and will choose to listen to!

I have been a fan or colosseum and Paraphernalia after two friends (both drummers) introduced me to his spectacular abilities. I have had the privilege of seeing him play live on many occasions over the years. Thanks for the fantastic memories of a life time ,your internal clock was always perfect.

Jon Hiseman inspired me in 1970 aged 14 to buy a drum kit. I was rubbish but he was still my hero. Thank you for all you gave and still give us.

scrivo per rendere omaggio al piu grande e completo batterista che io abbia mai sentito,conosco jon da quando ero ragazzo dal 1970 dopo aver ascoltato valentyne suite oggi leggendo questa rubrica mi sono commosso e come mi scrisse jon il 17 dic 2014 quando gli ricordai il decennale della scomparsa di dik, ho detto una preghiera silenziosa e ho pianto. scusate eventuali errori di ortografia. grazie
