so very sorry, Will. deeply sadden to hear of Ian's passing. i was introduced to bill nelson by a good friend in high school around the time of Red Noise and knew i had found a great artist with the most amazing music and lyrics i had ever heard. Ian's saxophone parts on the Sound On Sound and Quit Dreaming And Get On The Beam flowed so seamlessly through those arrangements and added so much soul and a texture you just couldn't find anywhere else in the rock world. Ian's
playing lives on forever in our hearts and souls and i wish i could thank him for what he has given us all. All his great work with Bill and Fiat Lux, every note drifting through the ether from my speakers to my ears an
aural monument to remind us all of this wonderful musician. Bill is a lucky man to have gotten to work with his brother in such a beautiful way. Thank you both for all the beauty you have brought into my life. Ian may be gone but he will most definitely never be forgotten.

Bill... I'm coming to this news very late but it comes as no less of a blow!
Ian's saxophone work has always moved me deeply and added tremendous depth to your own work! My condolences my friend... he will be greatly missed.

I too have come to this very sad news, only recently. May i offer my heartfelt & deepest condolences to all of Ian's family. I also want to echo the sentiments shared by Michael in the post above. It is always difficult to know what to say about bereavement, & what to say to those who are bereaved as grief is a very personal thing, & affects people in many different ways. Best wishes to all his family, & may his loving memory shine on in your lives.

Very best wishes,
S.

Just wanted to add my condolences now that I've joined the forum. I was really shocked to hear of Ian's passing. My cousin who was around the same age as Ian died 2 weeks ago - it really got to me, but I couldn't imagine losing my brother.

Dear Bill

I have been a fan and an avid listener for many many years, but it wasn't until today that I decided to try to find you on the web.

I am deeply saddened by the news I have found on this thread, and even though I feel I have no adequate words, I do want to add my condolences to the many others already expressed here.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

... sweet laughter, hereafter, ever after ...
... like bells in the night ...

Death is nothing at all

I have only slipped away into the next room

I am I and you are you

Whatever we were to each other

That we are still

Call me by my old familiar name

Speak to me in the easy way you always used

Put no difference into your tone

Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow

Laugh as we always laughed

At the little jokes we always enjoyed together

Play, smile, think of me, pray for me

Let my name be ever the household word that it always was

Let it be spoken without effort

Without the ghost of a shadow in it

Life means all that it ever meant

It is the same as it ever was

There is absolute unbroken continuity

What is death but a negligible accident?

Why should I be out of mind

Because I am out of sight?

I am waiting for you for an interval

Somewhere very near

Just around the corner

All is well.

Nothing is past; nothing is lost

One brief moment and all will be as it was before

How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again!



Canon Henry Scott-Holland, 1847-1918, Canon of St Paul's Cathedral
