We only ever really talked about our shared passion for the music of Radiohead. He even gave me a free ticket to one of their Earls Court gigs back in 2003. Nearly a decade ago.
I can’t pretend to know what might have happened in the intervening years. Or even what might have been happening then. Whatever the case, it’s over now—for better or for worse.
Neither of us had seen Radiohead perform live before; they didn’t disappoint—it was a fantastic night.
Things are always in such a delicate balance.
Rest easy, JB. You’ll be missed.
