We’re aware that some people could not make it to the memorial service in Liverpool. We set up this online book of celebration to give anyone a chance to share their memories of Colin and his music, along with any messages for the family.
We have now closed the Book of Celebration to new entries, but all previous entries remain below to view.
Still devastated over 2 years on....Colins music has always been the background of my life since first hearing Wonderful Life and subsequently buying the album....His song helped me through some difficult teenage years,and even now as a 46 year old man,I still find comfort in his songs....I am writing this while listening to I'm not afraid!
I recently had news of an old friends passing which has only heightened my awareness of how much Colin affected my life,because some special moments were made with my friend whilst having Wonderful Life (the whole album)as a soundtrack to our relationship.
I sign off with tears and my eyes and thanks in my heart for you Colin.
I took your song at face value and as a back drop to life, from it’s release until my life became ironic......
Now I can connect with your masterpiece on many levels, thought provoking and so atmospheric, thank you Colin Vearncombe
When I heard about Colin's passing, I couldn't believe it. The melancholy in his 1980s tracks is even deeper now with the tragic story of his passing.
All that I can say now is: thank you Colin. Thank you for bringing the joy of your music to our lives.You were seriously underrated.
His music revives, comforts, inspires, his music makes Us happy. His music in colors.
