The UK has lost one of its most talented musicians. John, famous for his worldwide hit “Music (was my first love and it will be my last)” died peacefully in his sleep with his family at his bedside. John played alongside a plethora of artists from Tina Turner, Jimmy Page, Joe Cocker to Andrea Bocelli amongst many others. As Johns manager and friend for over 50 years, John was not only so kind and gentle but a brilliant musician and songwriter on the world stage.
John leaves behind his wife Eileen married 50 years, two children and two grandchildren. Grief is the price we pay for love. He will be greatly missed, but his music will live on forever.
John Miles’ Manager, Orange Records
