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.
The memorial in Liverpool was a wonderful and emotional evening. My heart goes out to all Colin's family and friends. How his wife and son got through Fly Up To The Moon was a real credit. Had me in bits as did the closing rendition of You'll Never Walk Alone led by Garry Christian.
Thanks for allowing us to attend, enjoy and shed tears at the memorial.
Colin I will miss you but your music lives on. You had a voice from heaven and now you live there with the angels. Rest in peace mate
My life soundtrack,my favorite moments and the common denominator was "Black"
Sleep Well..It was a wonderful life.
Every record he made, i bought it. His writing, his singing, his playing, all fantastic.
Visited one gig, in Paradiso Amsterdam in 2012. Overwhelming, such a wonderful night with a wonderful person. What a voice !
Will miss him truly, though i will be listening to his songs over and over again. Stormy waters, Water on snow, Surrender, From Russia with love etc. etc.
My heart goes out to his family and friends.
Thanks Colin. RIP.
Love from The Netherlands,
I still have the ted wrist band with the word 'listen' on it that you gave me in October 2010.
A beautiful memorial service yesterday.
