Regarding if he had some tunes left in his "Basement"

and why that 20 Hurtz seems so rare..

This is what he said:

God only knows why someone would pay £120 or even half that for a tune.

This will either make you laugh or cry, but when I moved house in 2000 I left at least 500 white lables of various tunes I made outside for the dustman - I couldn't be arsed to move them! I probably threw away over £10k - but they were worthless to me at the time - and I still don't see their worth now.

Now you can see how 'bothered' I was (and still am) about stuff like this you will probably understand why I don't have much of these tunes lying around.

thats just weird though, to wipe out part of your past. others woudl kill for the opportunities he had DJ'ing, and now he can't be bothered with it. strange.

Is he crazy ? I thought some of those records would hold sentimental value to him. I personally couldnt just throw it all away like it ment nothing. Does seem strange. We all move on from things cause thats just life i guess.I bet there was a copy or 2 of The Creator in that pile also, Yikes ! <!-- s:shock: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/shock.gif" alt=":shock:" title="Shock" /><!-- s:shock: -->

That's heartbreaking, they'll be in a landfill now...imagine how many collectors those tunes would have made happy!

He and Paul Clarke run a software development company now, at least there's a nod to his past in the company name!

Not very hardcore though, is it?

I can see a bunch of people from b2vos living in his bins from now on, like oscar from sesame street...:D

Fair play to Ron, looks like he's succeeded in everything he's put his mind to. Better to burn out than fade away.

I can defo understand him not caring now if he's got lots of rewarding work he's currently doing + given how much of an "unsung" hero he was for those old tunes... probably why he never responded to my request for an interview. :(

Think there must only 5-6 in circulation :-) Only time I get the hump is when I see people selling the ones I gave them. Also just because some one has listed a tune for £50 does not mean its worth it.... not that I'm saying your stuff is not worth £50 :-)


Lien - Don't supppse you've got any JSA #1 or #2's knocking around do you. I've got all the others and I'd like to complete the set.

Even if he didn't care for the tunes, throwing away potentially £10k+ of anything has got to hurt! He sounds cross to me!
