    I am shocked to hear this news. Condolences to all John's family and friends.

    Johnny Fats may be gone, but he will never be forgotten, thanks to his prodigious talent and his unforgettable music.

    My heart goes out to Johnny's family, I have had the privilage of playing alongside him many times as have many here, it saddens me to think those days are now gone.
    It is a VERY sad loss, RIP Johnny.

    Heard the news this morning and hoped it was a vicious rumour but sadly it's true. Condolences to Johnny's friends and family, he was an amazing musician and a real gentleman who will be missed by many.

    So sorry to hear the sad news on the radio last night that Johnny had passed away. I know he will be greatly missed. My deepest sympathies to his friends and family. I knew of him as a legend in the local music scene for many years. Rest in peace, Johnny.

    Thank you Deemac for giving us this opportunity to leave our condolences (previous posts were deleted by Moderator due to us not being family).

    Agreed, the end of an era, a sad day for the Caithness music scene. Johnny facilitated countless budding musos of several generations (myself included) to get started. I was the one who persuaded him to leave his "steady" job at Dounreay to form a trio with myself and Billy Allardyce. The rest is history and I just hope he wrote it down!!! Just a couple of years ago (after a gap of around 35 years) we renewed our musical friendship and I was looking forward to doing it regularly, but that won't now happen. RIP John, one of a kind.

    Was totally stunned to hear of the passing of the one and only J Fats... you were a good friend to me and many others Johnny, I`ll miss you and can`t believe I`ll never hear you make those guitars sing again.

    Thoughts are with all the family and his many friends...

    Rock on Johnny Fats!
