Thread Name: The Enigma of Nic Jones
Subject: RE: The Enigma of Nic Jones
I finally caught up with the programme last night and have had a huge lump in my throat ever since. Profoundly moved at the memories (I will of course always remember the evening we first met at which he asked for a recording of "Icarus", as well as the subsequent meetings and the devastating news of the car crash at the Perform gathering in Manchester) and at the younger generation carrying it forward. Well done to all concerned - and Nigel, if you're reading this, you had me in tears.
As to "bringing the house down" - my memory is that he was, quite simply, regarded as one of the very best. In fact, that button badge saying he was god made me laugh out loud - pretty close!
