11/03/2022 Mick's so unique and inspiring!


02/03/2022 Living in the USA, I enjoy getting the DJ at parties to play some Japan songs. Most people have never heard a Japan song. But once they have heard something like Quiet Life, they are fans. I love having people listen for Mick's unique bass in some of the songs. RIP Mick, gone but never forgotten.

14/02/2022 I think of Mick often. His So organic, authentic, original. I had the tiniest of encounters with Mick. I sent him a letter, he sent a kind one back. I read his biography, I was touched. In it he wrote something akin to "It is a difficult thing to be both very intelligent and very sensitive." So many of us can relate. I rejoice that I lived in the time of a Mick Karn.

28/10/2021 Reading your autobiography now and am so sad you’re not still here. Mick - you’ll never be forgotten.


03/09/2021 I would like to express my condolences to the family and friends of Mick Karn ,who's life was cut short by the silent killer called cancer. I ,like many,many other fans of original musicians of the eighties was in awe of his amazing musical talents . His bass-playing is so distinctive and it will be discovered by many more people in years to come. I encourage my son's and their friends to listen to his music .I am sure that many others do the same. Music is, and always will be a major part of my life because it can change my emotions instantly. God bless. Gary.

03/07/2021 Karn 4ever!!! The best artist!!!


01/07/2021 Mick is undoubtedly one of the most unique and boldly original artists that ever lived. i feel nothing but complete astonishment when i listen to his playing, and that feeling never diminishes. i wish i could personally tell him how his work, across music and sculpture, is endlessly inspiring to me, but the fact that i live on the same planet that he did is good enough consolation.

21/05/2021 I want to honor the memory of an enthralling and talented musician whose legacy will endure. Best wishes to his family, gratitude to his supporters and fans.


08/05/2021 I was always in complete awe of Mick and his fret bass/saxophone playing talent. I adored Japan as an 11 year old, on a journey discovering my own musical taste. Then later, Mick’s solo and collaborative material. He was an incredible talent and sorely missed. I thought I’d write a message here, as I’ve had a Mick Karn day today, listening to a lot of his music and I just cannot believe it’s been 10 years since he left. What a legacy. Best regards to Mick’s family.
