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.
*In memory of Colin, I've created a compilation of almost two hours of brilliant Black tunes. Search YouTube for 'Black - unknown pleasures'. Enjoy.
As an aspiring writer of songs I have my song writing hero’s and Colin was one of those who I admired most. He will live on through the great music he made.
Sleep Peacefully Colin!

'Black' was my soundtrack in the late 80's in my late teens. A dark time for me where music was my escape. I have often said, I'm forever grateful for a number of artists including Black for getting me through so much back then and now I do have a Wonderful Life. I think I went through two cassettes and two vinyls of the first album in a couple of years!
Rest in peace Colin, very much missed, but never forgotten.
Thoughts are still very much with his family and friends.
A very large audience, the program always associated with a Wonderful Life.
I am sad and badly, so quickly ended the life of Colin
