  • Jack Kane Of Record Collector - RIP

    Apparently Jack Kane who writes articles for Record Collector, and is the editor of the Rare Record Price guide took his own life at the weekend.

    Didn`t know him at all, but sad to hear of an avid collector going out of the big door.

      Jack posted on the exotica list from time to time, he will be sorely missed.

      His funeral is today I believe some where in Stoke Newington... apparently he left very specific instructions for the service...

        It was a while, actually, not last weekend. Maybe ten days ago? I'm on a music journalist email list and it was posted on there over a week ago. Very sad. Apparently, he'd had some (unspecified) personal problems...

          heard it mentioned on marc riley's MINT show a day or two ago.

          couldn't get my head around it - a tragic shame - he seemed like a really decent bloke.

              It happened the week before last sunday...

              Just like Fuz, I knew him from the exotica list - I liked his class and always missed him when he was not around (he'd come and go).

              Sad to know he'll never be back.

                Teessider, thanks for posting this up. I hadn't heard and this is very sad news. I met him a few times when I lived in London as he was going out with a friend's sister, and he would often be lurking in the background when we out or when he came to see the band we were in. I hope RC gives him a decent tribute in a future issue.
