“Really saddened to hear the news of my dear friend & idol Big Tom passed away this morning.
Over my years in music Tom was my biggest influence.
On all my albums i have recorded alot of Big Toms songs & on the 50th year since Tom recorded (Gentle Mother)i brought out the tribute song (Big Tom Sang Gentle Mother).
Now your together again with Rose.
But you have left a wonderful legacy behind.
Thoughts are with your family & friends”
