I just heard on Facebook that Si Cowe has passed away. Such terrible news - obviously I didn't know him personally, but he seemed to be an unassuming bloke who didn't seem at all interested in fame etc. Probably the most underrated of the band's original line up, but a fantastic guitarist and occasional superb songwriter (Uncle Sam was one of my favourites from Fog on the Tyne)

I just picked up a Facebook notification from the 'Lindisfarne Story' that Simon has sadly passed away. Although he seemed to have now stepped away from the band and, as you say, he did not seem interested in the fame it is still so very sad be losing an original member. I hadn't realised his contribution had included writing.

So sad to hear of Si's passing , a very good musician and  songwriter, loved his vocals always a little quirky, really enjoyed him in Jack the Lad where he was more to the fore and taking on more lead vocals,
I hope is having a pint of his favourite tipple at the great brewery in the sky.
My sympathies to his family friends and admirers[/u]

Si was integral to those wonderful sweet and sour harmonies that made Lindisfarne well Lindisfarne.

RIP

I never met him either.

Sadly missed!

As is so often the case when a fantastic writer/director/musician (etc) passes away, it provides an incentive to read/watch/listen to their work. 'The News' is getting a good old airing today, in particular 'Dedicated Hound', and of course 'Plankton's Lament' from Dingly Dell.

I remember Si referring to himself as to the 'scrum half' of Lindisfarne. Quite apt given the current tournament.

Here's to plenty more time listening to his music.

The word of mouth has just reached my ear. Desperately sad.

Simon signed my ticket Ben Zenn at Loughborough University during the Dance Your Life Away tour. RIP Si one of the original fab 5!
