R.I.P. John Peel: Groundbreaking UK DJ John Peel died today. He was 65: ["Legendary British DJ John Peel Dies"]. Most underground music fans know Peel from his "Peel Session" releases. Because he was such a big alternative DJ in England, bands would re-record their songs for his show, creating special versions which would often be released as rare import EPs. Such a loss for the industry.
