I am so immensely saddened by the news of Woolly's death, i can't really express the full depth of my feelings. I've met him on several occasions, shared a few jokes, and laughed at many more in between songs at Barclays and Maestoso gigs over the past ten years. His music has enthralled me since i discovered the Barclays around 1974. Many of us thought we'd never see Woolly grace the stage again after his retirement in the early 1980s, but we dared to dream, and it was with indescribable joy that i witnessed him hurling out the first lines of She Said, the opening number on his return to the British concert circuit at the Bristol Anson Rooms in March 2001. None of the power and majesty in his playing, or the hard-edged fragility of his singing, seemed to have deserted him.

All the ensuing years and tours were an unexpected bonus, but now that joy has turned to sadness. Woolly was a guy whose tremendous life-force shone in both his wonderful, soul-searching music, and his hilarious humour. Let us honour his memory with both the music and the laughter that he gave us. My sincere condolences go to Sue, and all Woolly's other friends and family. I hope you take strength in the knowledge that so many others share in your grief.

This is so sad. It was clear to all who loved BJH that Wooly was a sensitive fellow and his battles with depression had been very difficult for him, but this is such tragic news. Goodbye Wooly

I am familiar with the band's Octoberon & To Earth era.I have read selected chapters of Nick Awde's book Mellotron and I am now sadly compelled to read Wooly's chapter in said book.To a band that has stood the test of time,my condolences to you and his family.

Shocking news. Remember seeing BJH a number of times around Europe in the early 70's and Woolly was indeed a shining light.

Deepest sympathy to his family and friends.

I first saw BJH in Edinburgh in the mid 1970's and became an instant convert to their unique progressive rock style. Woolly's swirling Mellotron was remarkable and never beaten by any other musician. BJH was THE concert of the year and I never missed BJH on tour whilst a student in Edinburgh. 35 years later I am still listening to all those wonderful BJH LP's (now on mp3) and the music is as fresh and meaningful now as it was then. Both Woolly and Mel Pritchard will be missed but their work will live in our hearts and last for ever. I hope that John and Les will continue to fly the BJH banner in the memory of these wonderful musicians. They have passed on but they still live in the music they helped to create as essential members of BJH.

Fan from long time ago of BJH, I saw the band at the "spirit of 66" Verviers, Belgium on november 24, 2009. Wolly was very enjoying on stage, joking with the crowd. Great concert. Thanks for all the musical pleasure you gave.

We just cannot believe the devastating news of Woolly. We have lost one of music’s special contributors. He was the king of the Mellotron and his musicality, superb arrangements, singing and terrific keyboard skills will be so greatly missed and cannot be matched. We were very lucky to be able to have a chat with Woolly last year at the BJH concert in Colchester, where he was gracious enough to sign our tickets.

Once again, we are so sad to receive this news which we know will devastate BJH, Maestoso and Woolly’s many loyal fans around the world.

Woolly, thank you for your music. Rest in peace.

Woolly, Thank you so much for the big chords, the sensitive lyrics and the many laughs along the way. Desperately sad that you found this life such a trial but now you can 'sail forever on the sea'.

Your music kept me going in the early 70's during some tough days. Seeing you first in '72 in Manchester through to last year in Portsmouth have been special moments. Thank you for all of it.

It is incredibly sad to hear of Woolley's passing. Although I never met Woolly, I have always had incredible respect for him as a musician since the first time I saw BJH supporting Led Zeppelin at the Usher Hall, Edinburgh in 1970. We wrote the band a letter saying how fantastic they had been, and they all responded, how kind. I shall shed a special tear for you Woolley each time I listen to The Poet. RIP
