I'll play Early morning Rain over the weekend as a tribute.
John struggled with his health for some time, but what a great career and he seemed a very nice guy.
Hope he's in a better place.

John seemed to be a gentle soul. His "Early Morning Rain" bit with Elvis in concert was always a highlight.

May he rest in peace.

A true gentleman.

I met him at an Essential Elvis event a few years ago and he was so kind, thanking everyone who had come to meet him personally. He was genuinely moved that so many people turned up to see him.

R.I.P.

I sent this recording right now to Norbert Putman. As he is touring with the guys from TCB, I'm pretty sure they will have a good time hearing it.

Awful news. John was such a good man. RIP, dear John. Thanks for the memories.

I've had the privilege to meet John, shake his hand: a wonderful, kind man with a BIG heart who also really loved and respected Elvis and remained loyal to him as a friend during and after Elvis' life.
He never did the gossip game.

I'll always remember John singing "Early Morning Rain" with the TCB band during their first reunion concert in Belgium years ago, it was very touching.
RIP, John.

This one's for you:
