RIP Mark Hollis

Might have been a Spurs fan, but achieved what he wanted and quit music so he could be a 'proper dad to his kids'. Hated the limelight and wouldn't toe the line, but wrote some remarkable music. Colour of Spring and Spirit of Eden especially, thank you Mr Hollis!

My absolute musical hero. He had so much more to give, but what he did give will be with me forever.
