John Peel, veteran radio presenter and DJ, has died suddenly on holiday in South America.
John and his wife Sheila were on a working holiday in the city of Cuzco, Peru when he suffered a massive heart attack.
John Peel had a broadcasting career that spanned 40 years and was known for supporting emerging bands.
I was quite shocked to hear about this today, I'd never realised that he was 65! Still no age at all though.
It's going to be strange not having his voice overs on some of these fly on the wall documentaries that he'd been involved with lately.
