found out sad news this morning that drummer Jon Brookes, 44, of one of my favorite 90s bands The Charlatans died from brain cancer today. I followed The Charlatans from D.C. to Montreal on several tours– 1992 and 1994– and got to know the guys as best one innocent 20-something could. There wasn’t any shagging or snogging but some fun drinking, partying and chit-chatting.
Jon Brookes and me, whereabouts unknown:
