John Glockler 1949 – 2016

It is with a heavy heart that I report the passing of my friend and colleague John Glockler on Tuesday 13th December 2016.

John joined me in the business that is now Proper back in 1988, a couple of months after I had formed the company. We had worked together for the preceding ten years at SP&S Records in east London.

John had been seriously ill for the last four years but developed cancer of the Pancreas earlier this year. It proved to be inoperable and I was with him in Lewisham hospital as he crossed the bridge on Tuesday at 4pm. I asked him to give my love to Duke Ellington.

His brother Robert is making funeral arrangements for January 2017 in Blackheath, London and I will publish the details once known.

Now go and play some Gene Vincent records.
