That's really a shame. Only got to see Nick once, with the T-Birds, but he was an incredibly talented musician. RIP :-(

RIP. Caught him a couple years ago touring behind Reform School Girl. Sad news.

A very sad day. Nick was a super guy who I was privileged to call a friend, and one of the greatest talents of our time (or any), no exaggeration. You name it, Nick had it in spades. I always thought he would have been a huge star if he ever got the chance to appear on national TV in the right slot. May he keep rockin' forever.

What an amazing and uncommon talent he was. May his soul rest in peace.

Oh man, that is really bad news. One of the great young bluesmen. He will be missed, along with his punk rock look.

Nick was a great guy and greater player. He talent was deep and wide. Never to forget.

I met Nick here in Corvallis a number of years ago during a very poorly attended gig. His playing was fantastic, his tone was huge and he put on a great show for the few in attendance. He gave me a band T shirt afterwards as we sat and talked music and gear for a while.

This is such terrible news. He was a genuine talent and he clearly loved to play.

I'm going to spin "Doctor Velvet" tonight.

RIP Nick.

Very very sad to hear that one. What a talent, what a voice. He sat in on a gig I was in L.A. Years ago and swung like hell.
That is an awful form of cancer and took my friend & great guitar player Dave Bernstein as well. R.I.P. Nick, we will remember you.

That is really terrible news. Hearing his stuff really inspired me and a whole bunch of players I know. He is one of my favourite modern players and he was a great vocalist as well - I loved his Little Richard covers.

RIP
