Mike Walker's tribute to John Taylor


Guitarist Mike Walker's tribute to his fellow Mancunian, pianist John Taylor is just wonderful - it is reproduced here if you haven't seen it.....brilliant

"Rewind this day
let it go on with
you
still in it,
I don't want too late
I don't want your chords and notes
and rhythms to snap me
into
our new daybreak
I don't want your touch
to press an ache
so much
so
I cannot sing the song
you taught me
But then,
I surrender to
A smile across a stage
somewhere
at the centre of an essence
distilled from all the moments
you shared with us
as we twisted and turned
around your beautiful fingers"
