Thread: UK Voice of Rock Dies

    DJ Tommy Vance dies after stroke
    Former BBC Radio 1 DJ Tommy Vance has died in hospital three days after suffering a stroke.
    Vance, who was 63, died in Kent at 0400 on Sunday, his agent said.

    The DJ, best remembered for his gravelly voice, started out on US radio before working at Radio Caroline and Radio 1.

    "He was a great bloke and he was held in very high regard for his knowledge of rock which was unsurpassed," said his agent Jon Roseman.

    "I had known Tommy for 35 years. He certainly had one of the most recognisable voices on radio," he added.

    Vance, who has two children, also presented the Friday Night Rock show on digital channel VH1 and more lately had his own show on digital radio station Virgin Classic Rock.

    Even if you don't recognise the name, I guarantee you've heard his voice (if you live in the UK that is). One of the best rock DJs out there and on a lot of adverts.

    I used to watch the Friday Rock Show which he presented. RIP Tommy.

    TV played a major part in my radio listening in the 80's.
    He will be sadly missed.
