John Peel Dies

Radio 1 DJ and one of The Crimea’s biggest fans, John Peel, has died at the age of 65 while on a “holiday of a lifetime” in Peru. His playing of The Crimea’s Lottery Winners On Acid gave the band more exposure than anything else I can think off. The band also recorded one of their first radio sessions for his show, the tracks of which are currently up for download here. Tributes are already pouring in, you can leave yours on the BBC site, or just post a message on this Radio 1 message board. You can read more on his passing away on this BBC news page, on the Radio 1 site, or visit his Radio 1 Peel Show homepage.
