It is with great sadness I have learnt that Jet Black has passed away.
We shared a special period of our lives when we strived to become professional musicians.
We were immediately drawn to one another, he had a singular sense of purpose that I identified with.
He threw everything in his previous life out, to dedicate himself to our common goal.
Our birthdays were 2 days apart, so we were quite similar.
The Stranglers success was founded on his determination and drive.
His timing was faultless.
All power to him and his legacy.
