Tribute pour to colin cole death
Devastated to hear the news about Big Colin Cole. I toured with Colin in Afghanistan, we did the jongleurs gigs, cruises, the Sensatori gigs etc. My abiding memory from that Afghanistan tour was when a tiny Gurka soldier came over to us after one of the shows and politely asked “Can I please have my picture taken with your giant?” I couldn’t stop laughing for ages, as if he was our giant that we kept captive. Well he was a giant not only physically but a caring gentle soul. Rest well my ole mate. Xx
Sorry to hear that he was a lovely guy used to love when he was on the line up at Jongleurs
