11/06/2020 Had the pleasure of meeting you at an exhibition of yours in London. I was in my early 20s then and you made such an impression on me, a true gentleman that I will never forget ❤


06/06/2020 Hey Mick, you inspire me. You are the most amazing, original bass player. The way you play changed the way I view the bass. I’ve read your book and its fascinating. You are greatly missed.

10/04/2020 Toujours une pensée pour Mick Karn, un grand artiste.


13/03/2020 Had forgotten him a bit, just came across him again on Spotify. He was really a bass player giant. Have several CDs of his somewhere in the attic. Go play them again. Too bad he's not there anymore. Could have given us many more beautiful things.

27/01/2020 I first listened to Mick’s music in the 90s when I was starting out on bass long before I took up the fretless but I didn’t discover all that he created in art and music until recently. He is my favorite fretless bass player by far now. His music is like new found discovery now for me. I am sorry to hear of his passing he is one of the great players.

16/12/2019 Never forgotten Mick - saw you several times and met you at the launch of your sculpture exhibition. Seems such a long time ago and yet seems like yesterday. x
