    Shocked - like a lot here, never had the pleasure in person, but ever since I first stumbled across the old VV forum where he was a regular contributor of 'Towny's Ten' charts he seemed like a pillar of the place, and one of those whose posts would always have you paying closer than usual attention because you knew he'd have something worth hearing to say...

    A real shame, and far too soon.

        I am really shaken by this very sad news.
        I met Neil three or four times across the last few years, I can atest to the high regard he is held in. Struggling to put anything into words.
        He did this for our Preston meet a couple of years ago




        Totally in my thoughts, my love to the family and friends.

          Just found this forum by googling Neil's name as I've just heard he's died and know little else. I'm an old friend of his from Cambridge but I hadn't seen him for 5+ years. Really shocked and gutted. He was a wonderfully gentle, talented, interesting bloke and he did a couple of amazing remixes of my tunes that I am still doing live ten years after the fact. Thanks for all your kind comments. If anyone knows the circumstances of his death could they send me a private message please.

            Really shocked like everyone else here. I never met the man, but chatted with him few times via PM. He kindly sent me a copy of "Tinsel Towny 1" after I requested it - which he didn't have to do, it was just a nice generous gesture a stranger, which seems to say something about the man. What a loss for the board, his family and his friends.

            R.I.P.

              We have lost such a valuable contributor - in every sense of the word - to this little online community of ours.
              My thoughts to those who knew him and his family.

                  As with everyone else, I'm totally shocked by the news. Only met Towny properly the last time Fuz was down from Edinburgh and we had a pleasant afternoon's digging in Harrogate.
                  He came across as an intelligent, creative feller with oodles of enthusiasm and an easygoing manner.

                  I hope you rest easy, son

                    • Sad and very shocking. I haven't seen Neil for a long time, but shared a house with him in Cambridge for a year and half. A really talented, warm-hearted and genuine person. My deepest sympathies are with his family,

                      • What sad news about Towny.

                        I never had the fortune to get to know Towny personally, but he came over here as a very pleasant and talented, not to mention knowlegable chap. His Christmas swap CDs are legendary. My sincere condolences to his family.

                          • Sadly I never knew him beyond this arena and even more sadly I can't now. Nothing to say beyond that that hasn't already been expressed.
                            Enthusiastic vagueness passes for scholarship in the twilight world of the disc-jockey.

                              Craig, I think that would be a fitting tribute. Please count me in, as and when.
