Very sorry to hear this. My condolences to his family.
I'll repeat what I wrote on the thread concerning his illness.
Johnny Taylor was very generous to me, a Canadian who attended the
Redcar Folk festival in 1976. When he found out I did a radio program on
a small radio station, he introduced me to Vin Garbut, Willie Scott, and Les Barker, among others.
I have always had fond memories of his warm and welcoming personality and his kindness.
