A sad loss to British country music.

We used to book Jon and Country Fever in the 70's and 80's in Wolverhampton. He was a brilliant performer and a great person.

Mark...So very sorry to hear about Jon. Met him a few times and he got up with our band and sang some great songs, he was the nearest I've heard to my idol George Jones. He could still teach a few people today on the present country circuit and will be missed by all who knew him. RIP Jon

Sorry to hear about Jon Derek. I see he achieved a great deal. I intend to go through his back catalogue and learn more about him.

Mark...As a fan of your dad's from the Pontin's days, I would like to send my sincere condolences to you and your family. He was a brilliant musician and singer - my hero. He will be missed by his fans. RIP Jon Derek.
