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.
Gone but will never be forgotten.
Dominion Theatre supported by Furniture the gig of my life.
Every time I think of it, I just can not believe it.
So many years and so much love.
Your beloved family... - it just breaks my heart.
It´s hard to find the right words.
No one KNOWS why humans exist.
You could have your belief.
Some people do so, some don´t.
Some get it back. Some early, some late.
And some people never.
But what I do KNOW is,
that this world was much better with you, Colin.
So thank you for all the love and life you gave to the world.
Your friend in mind,
PS: sorry for my bad english or wrong grammar.
My wife and I saw Colin only once @ Ron Scott's in Birmingham. It was a tremendous gig, I think I had a tear in my eye for most of it, on the one hand because of the voice live and one the other for a talent largely unrecognised. We had a quick chat with Colin after the gig and found him to be charming and genuinely nice.
We've been listening for over 30 years and will continue to do so until our last breath. For the record "Let Me Watch You Make Love" is one of my top 5 tracks of all time.
I hope Colins family find comfort in the love that the fans had for him and the place he has in our hearts.
Love and best wishes, Gary & Loraine
