In tiefer Trauer, mein letzter Gruß an Wolly einem großen Musiker.uns bleiben deine Lieder.

Very shocked I read the news that Woolly passed away.
Only once I was able to see a concert with him, John and the other members of the band. That was last year in Karlsruhe /Germany in November. I had invited a friend and the ticket was the gift for her 50th birthday. We enjoyed the concert, the evening, music and Woolly´s humor. His jokes between the songs were very much appreciated. I feel sorry for the loss of a person with a lot of humor and musical qualities.

Words are never really enough. As a fan since student days in the 70's I've admired the pure heart and soul that Wooly put into the music. There was always a certain difference that he made and John was right a few years ago when he said that Wooly was the heart of the band. I was luck enough to see loads of gigs with the original line up and with his subsequent return. Without a doubt one of my favourite players - ever. Someone who could play like a virtuoso but always knew that sympathy with the song was everything. Really going to be missed.

There really are no words that can comfort those close to Woolly. In the coming weeks, you must try to focus on the good times, and clearly there were many. He was one of the architects of the sound of rock music that has survived the years, and, like that music, he will not be forgotten.

Priviledged to have seen Woolly in concert a number of times over the past few years - most recently in Perth, Scotland last December. His stage presence and sense of humour were as magnificent as his music. My sympathies to everybody who was close to him. He will be sadly missed.

Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this sad time.

Pocos hicieron sonar un mellotron como él .

I was deeply sorry to hear about Woolly. I met Woolly a couple of times and he was a gentle man and a great character and charismatic performer. He was a magician on the mellatron. I made a tribute to him on my local radio show last night - and played the Poet/After The Day from the Legacy:Live at Shepherds bush Empire 2006 CD with Woolly on lead vocals. His voice had a delicate ethereal quality to it. Very moving. Rest in peace Woolly.

I am at a loss for words, at a loss to understand the whys and wherefores of this tragic event. I have been a fan and friend of the band BJH since 1970. In this 40 years we have all celebrated together the magnificence of the music of Barclay James Harvest, in no small part due to the talents of Woolly Wolstenholme, and collaborations with John Lees and Les Holroyd. We have celebrated the uniqueness and originality of Woolly's musical visions, and his cleverness, in presenting to us his class act for the world to enjoy. It is with deep sorrow, regret and melancholy that I bid adieu to Woolly, not in the way that we had hoped, as an old man in his bed.Woolly was my age, and it is an extremely bitter shock to hear of his loss, especially since only two years ago I had to deal with the horrors of my own youngest brother's untimely suicide, which is still something of a mystery to our family.
My heart goes out to Jill, and his family, Keith and Monika, and probably most of all to John Lees and Les Holroyd, his mates for more than 40 years. He is sorely missed. May God grant you all peace. Woolly, we will meet again Beyond the Grave.

Really sad to hear this news and finding it difficult to pay adequate tribute to this great man. Many many thanks for all the great pleasure you've given us over all these years. Deepest condolences to his family and may it comfort them to know how much he was thought of my so many people. Woolly, you may have passed on but your music will live on and will always continue to be a huge part of my life and that of many thousands of people around the world. God bless and rest in peace.

Hello John. I was shocked to read of the sad passing of Wolley in the Manchester Evening News tonight.
I have fond memories of meeting you all, many moons ago in Oldham. My best pal in those days was a chap called David Lees, we worked together and I seem to recall that David and Wolley may have been old school pals.

BJH - one of my first "hero worship" bands during my schooldays back in the early 1970s - and I ended up moving up near Saddleworth not long afterwards. The mellotron was always a haunting sound, and Stuart was a master. It's sad, so sad that things have gone the way they have - I only hope that Stuart has finally found the peace that he was obviously looking for . RIP

I've been listening to "Suicide" a couple of times since I heard those terrible news. Who would have thought, that this song would become reality for a member of the band someday? I hope for Woolly that he has found what he was looking for and that he isn't alone now. Rest in Peace

I'm devastated that Woolly is no longer with us. His sublime songwriting and no-nonsense down to earth attitude made him a towering presence among my musical heroes of the last 25 years. RIP Woolly, and keep on rocking with Mel, Rick Wright, Rory Gallagher, John Martyn, Alan Hull and Sandy Denny at the great gig in the sky.

So sad news; although I did never met Wooly personally and only saw him on the stage once, I feel that I would not be quite same person without his influence. Now listening Birds that fly…
