A good man died so young

I've just found out that a good friend of mine died today.  He was only 51 but was suffering from brain cancer for a number of years.  He fought a good battle but survived longer than his doctors would have predicted.

I met John at Lloyd's and amongst other things we went to many gigs together in London but perhaps the highlight was our random trip to Hong Kong (10 years ago today).

We were on one of the maiden flights of the short lived airline Oasis Hong Kong and shared a hotel room together.  I think the flights and hotel cost a little more than £400.  Bargin!


This is a photo from the lifts of the Four Seasons hotel on the main land.  On the way to a bar of course.


A good friend, he will be missed.
