Dear Wooly,

I hope that you finally experience the peace that you were never able to find in this life.
Yours truly has always loved your music, and will until the end of all things.

Nearly a year on from the sad passing of Woolly. I still visit this page, and am always cheered by the wonderful posts placed here. RIP Woolly, my friend.

Dear dear Woolley. Your music damn near saved my life when I was 16, back in 1971. Those first four BJH albums still get played 40 years later. You invited me to your home for dinner in 1981 - what memories I still have of that special January day. And many years later, you politely declined my offer of smuggling a few treats into your York hospital room, but still thanked me a few weeks later with a postcard from France. I will never forget you, or the effect your music has had on me. It set the compass, and there has been lttle to compare ever since. God bless you.

Dear Woolly,
I'm the girl who appears in photos from a gig in Athens on this website. I've grown up, but I still remember this day, your quiet energy, your good nature. I'm glad I've met you, even for a while. I'm studying Psychology now, so I'll have the chance to help people with mental health problems :)
You may be resting on the wings of love, but your music still lives on and you inspire me a lot!
See you in another world.. Keep on rocking! :)

You blew mw away in Manchester in 1970, the first concert I ever saw. I love the fact that your music lives on. RIP

dear Woolly,
not a single day goes by without me thinking of you... and slowly, one by one, the pain of loss makes way to thankfulness of what I've been given and, through the legacy of your music, am still able to share in the here and now. Well, i didn't make it to TV yet ( as you said to me I should ) but at least my voice gets heard through some Internet-radio-stations now... and having been featured in a show alongside your recording of "Galadriel" ( with the Mandalaband ) sure felt strange... you know, i can't see myself playing in the same league with yours, really, but after having done "The Iron Maiden" once this year to encouraging response I'm working hard now to add one of your "big ones" ( you know, the ones that are "too complicated" for me... ) to my repertoire... i will not perform it until i get to a stage at which i feel comfortable with my singing and playing, though, so it may take me a long time, still, but I won't give up on it... promised...
and, by finally seeing through the chord-structures i may even improve my songwriting... I'm so amazed with what you've done, I'm still learning like a schoolboy... and for one time at least i believe this has to be said ( so I am justified for making a second entry here ): YOU WERE THE BEST !
Thanks for your support, I am eternally grateful and if there's justice somehow, somewhere, then you are now in a place in which you live on eternally happy, free of any pain and doubt,
finally getting what you truly deserve and we, poor as we are, were not able to give you... thanks, too, for the ( on my behalf ) little that we COULD...
for what you gave was so much more...
may it be rewarded
love
Rupert

I could never understand the emotion that many people feel when a popular artist dies - until I heard of the passing of Wooly Wolstenholme. Then I understood. I was devastated. To say the impact that BJH and Wooly's music had on me was profound is a vast understatement - all the way back to some of my fondest memories as a teenager in the early 70's. We truly have lost a great artist.

Oh God. I'm so upset. If it were not for Woolly Wolstenholme, I would not be playing keyboards today with Think Floyd. His writing, arrangements, sounds, everything were so RIGHT in my mind. I loved his work, and aspired - still do - to create tunes and atmospheric arrangements that come close to what he did with such apparent ease.

I wanted to see him playing again last November, but clearly that was not to be as he was unwell, and I had a gig clash too.

R.I.P. Woolly. Thanks. Love. Hope we meet one day in a better place.

The song 'Beyond the grave' apart from being a musical masterpiece it is also in my opinion a prophecy. It says much about the author who I believe was a very spiritual person.We are sure of that if we listen to 'Ra' track.

Je viens d'apprendre le décès de Woolly. C'est une perte pour votre groupe dont je suis fan depuis que j'ai écouté la première chanson au milieu des années 70. Je n'ai pas manqué un concert lors de vos passages dans la région Est de la France. J'ai pu admirer votre dernière prestation à Colmar à la foire au vins (08/2011). Quel plaisir de voir que la magie s'opère toujours entre BJH et son public fidèle ! Continuez à nous faire rêver, je pense que c'est la plus belle preuve de reconnaissance que l'on puisse faire à Woolly.

Wooly,s contribution to BJH brought a special and distinctive style to a band I will always consider one of the best ever.It was so good to hear him playing music once more with John in the later stages of his life and I am sad to see a fellow Oldhamer has passed away in such sad circumstances.
The music never dies.

I became familiar with the music of Barclay James Harvest while working as a DJ in college. I never get tired of "Eden Unobtainable" and "When the World was Woken" with Wolly's trademark mellotron sound. What a tragic loss....God bless you Woody
