I haven`t seen John for quite a time, but glad he is happy and smiling! Thank you for the post, sure some members haven`t come across this photo. And if it is his daughter, she is a beauty!!!

I too think it's a shame that John retired I'd like him to come back into music even if he worked with someone else as I think he's a great base player.

But yeh glad to see he's looking healthy

It is indeed a shame that John is not working, and has not since NOBY, but to call it a 'waste of talent' is unfair to a man who gave us 26 years of is life. A man is entilteld to his own life after all.

Absolutely agree with you! But if he doesn`t want or finds it hard to tour, he could just give a song or two to the guys, I mean he could contribute some of his songs to an album. I am also sure that he is still writing songs, having such a talent, and having written such a great number of masterpieces. A person can`t just say, Stop! No more songs, no more inspiration, no more creativity. All the more so, because he has a studio as some of you state. So what is he doing there, still singing the songs from the past? Or just enjoying the atmosphere? HE IS WRITING SONGS! Do you agree?

I don't know - John is a strange one. He never struck me as the 'pop' star type anyway. He only wrote songs in the first place because the others encouraged him to, and he never really wrote THAT many - just that 80% of what he wrote happened to be effing excellent.



I truly believe that Deacy is at heart a very humble family man, who was lucky enough to have made several Millions squids out of playing a bass guitar a penning a few tunes with/for the biggest group on the planet.



I have no problems picturing him playing golf, sitting on his ass and spending time with his family.



I am a musician myself, and I used to write and record with my brother. I have been writing songs since I was 6, and music is just about the ONLY thing that really makes me feel alive, but when my brother died aged just 29 two years ago, I began to feel VERY differently, and I have not written a single note or lyric since then. I am 'over' his death, but somehow the music doesn't have the same appeal or effect. 



I can well imagine that for John it is just never gonna be the same, and I think they may have even had to 'drag' him into the studio to record NOBY.



All my own 'theory' of course.



I just think that after a solid twenty years and a couple of dozen songs (nearly) it is far from a wasted talent. Sad that he quit, but fact of life.

It would be great if John got back into music but he spends so much time campaigning for the British National Party that I don't think it's ever going to  happen.

Er, what the heck are you on about? Is that just some joke or do you have proof that JD is doing that for the BNP?
