Ray Cooper

So sad to learn of Ray Cooper’s death.

He was a passionate music man who would stick by what he believed through thick and thin.

His unique and wry sense of humour was never far away, which would and could charm all those around him.

In a world full of illusion, fire and thunder Ray would only see the human.

I am happy to have had the chance to work with him and get to know him.

We will miss you Ray.

– Peter Gabriel
