How old was he? He wasn't very old.
I'm assuming that he had cancer. I'm only guessing that because one of his friends posted "F cancer", concerning his passing.

No, but he did make sure we met Christine in '84 on her solo promo tour and he got us in to a party in '88 at the Sonesta hotel in Amsterdam. He always made sure we had free tickets and backstage passes. Basically making sure we had access to the band.

This is such sad news. I could only imagine that the band are grieving. The three Brits worked with him 1973. Christine still used him as a manager, at least until 1998, but I think right into the In the Meantime era.

Further evidence that if the band wants to do new music, they need to act with a bit more urgency.

Fantastic picture!

This looks like a small hall. Could this be from before 1975?

That's what I'm thinking, too. Look at all the small "par can" lighting. I'd certainly guess pre 1975.

Here are a couple of pictures of John I came across this morning. For those who may not be aware who John was, he was Fleetwood Mac's tour manager for decades, and during the band's heyday would introduce the band onstage by saying: "Ladies and gentlemen, would you please give a warm welcome to FLEETWOOD MAC!"


He's in the upper right hand corner.


With Christine and Stevie.

I was just listening to Sirius XM's The Bridge yesterday, and Stevie came on to do a promo talking about the song "Sister Golden Hair" and, how that was her nickname for John Courage, due to his long, silky, golden hair. She mentioned how much they all loved him, and how he was the best road manager a band could ask for.

Stevie does lots of promos for the Bridge. I wrote about one a few weeks ago.

From what I've heard. John died of lung and stomach cancer. Very sad. Wonderful human being. Had a small conversation with him about animals a while back.

RIP John

So sad to hear the news about JC.
I wonder if there has been any word yet on the funeral... I'd guess Chris and Mick would most likely attend.

btw, I find it rather sad neither Mick nor Christine have posted a message via their Twitter. I do hope they've passed on personal messages to the appropriate family members.
