RIP Colin Farrow

Received this email from Lewis Watson: "Just  heard that my old friend and bandmate from way back, Colin Farrow passed away at the weekend, he'd been suffering for a few years with the dreadful  Motor Neurone disease, If you could post notice on your site hopefully some people who knew Colin might get to hear the sad news,*
----- 
Yes, Lewis this is sad news indeed. I remember well the Sneck sessions at the Corner House with Colin on alto and you on tenor and soprano blowing some great stuff. I would hazard a guess that Sneck was the first young modern band to make an impact on the local scene in the late 1970's/early '80's.
Thoughts are with you and Colin's  closest.
RIP.
Lance.

Sad news indeed - I was at Newcastle Music college with Colin and played guitar in Sneck. I remember him fondly as a really decent human being with a great love for jazz. I also remeber him driving me home on a few occasions ...
RIP
