Subject: RE: Obit: Tony Capstick (UK)
I'm going to miss the old bugger so much, tuned in to so many of his Radio Sheffield progs through the years, met him many times. He kipped on my sofa in the seventies, after a gig and heavy session in Wakefield. I got him up for an early train to Sheffield, and he thanked me on air on his Saturday morning show.
We'll no longer hear his dulcet(!)tones shaking Whitby's cobbled streets singing "I can sing louder than Bob Davenport", at two a.m.
He remarried only 2 years ago, and I believed he'd got his act together.
A colourful and unique character. Very funny, and a damn fine guitarist. R.I.P. Tone.
