With my deepest sympathy on Simon's death. a wonderful, caring thoughtful person and with a great sense of fun. The world is a poorer place with his loss.
Will never be forgotten
Rest in Peace
Was a privilege knowing Simon. He was an in depth knowledge of my 2 favourite films, Quadrophenia and Up the Junction. The first time I had contact with Simon was a few years ago when he sent me some Quadrophenia photos from his book, and ironically the last time I see Simon was when he took me, my partner Samantha and a couple of others on his Quadrophenia tour in Brighton. Simon had a great sense of humour, was extremely intelligent and certainly a fantastic writer. He will be very much missed. RIP Simon
Thinking of you Simon. I shall remember you. You gave Joy to people
Laid to rest in the land he loved. Rest in peace… but rock on, old friend…
Such a kind and joyful man. He brought so much happiness to the pub with his presence, music and Santa appearances.
Deepest condolences to his close ones xx
Thank you for your frendship, Simon. X
A truly pure soul, who didn't deserve to be taken so soon! I'm sure you will have them all dancing where ever you are! RIP Simon

God speed, Si. You will be much missed by everyone who was blessed enough to have known you.
Gone too soon, Simon, but respected beyond a lifetime.
Simon was such a Gentleman, and a friend. God Bless him and his family.
You were blossoming, writing and so into music! You helped with getting all us class mates together for our reunion just a few years ago. It was so lovely to see you again. We were all grown up.
See you on the other side sweet friend 💔 Nikki Wilson
Farewell Simon, a truly wonderful person. I have such fond memories. You will be missed by so many. It was a privilege to know you. Peace. xx
I remember the first day I met you
We were 8 yrs old. I thought to myself, he's crazy. He has to be with that mop of dark hair....then....the shenanigans began. You had me sitting on the edge of my seat. Never a dull moment belonging to the same team. Always hilarity...a smooth jocularity. The classroom cupboard staged many pranks and hid your partner in crime for an entire main lesson. You held the whole class in your hands. Now that's talent. You are held in the hearts of so many. Such a bright light.❤
In memory of an and old friend and a fine man. Rest In Peace.
Sandra and John Rhodes
The light you shared here on Earth now brightens Heaven too. Peace and joy always! 💗
Your still with us Simon.
RIP Dear Friend x
So many memories; so much to say. RIP, Sime X

So sad to hear the news about Simon. He was such a gentle soul and really friendly and interested former work colleague. The world of popular culture is the poorer for his departure.
Words cannot express how much I will miss you being around my friend. I will never forget you x
Thinking of all the good times on Ashdown Forest and hanging out over all those years I lived in Forest Row drinking tea, talking guitars and listening to music.
Bless you Louisa. Simon bought you so much joy and will be greatly missed x
Simon, thank you for the funny meal we shared, the chats and the lovely music. I often listen to your CD. Keep the music going wherever you may be. Our loss is their gain. Much love to you xxxx

Shine on you lovely man. Deep and heartfelt condolences to family, and for the whole village.
I have only just heard about Simon’s death last month. I first met him a couple of times when he worked at Kensington library and we chatted about film, The Beatles and his then work in progress, Coming Down Fast. I stayed in touch with him via Social Media, where he always responded to my queries about something I was struck by in his latest project, and also through his remarkable books. Not just an inspirational and knowledgable writer and musician, but friendly, kind and approachable - the kind of person the world needs more of. My thoughts and best wishes go out to his family at this difficult time.
A lovely kind caring man x simple one of the best x taken far to early
Truly a great human being. Multi talented and someone who always inspired me to be a better person. RIP Simon
Your amazing spirit lives on, meeting and connecting with your spirit family and friends on the other side. I am happy I knew you, even a little bit.
Rare, precious, talented and sensitive Simon! You radiated joy and light and will always do so.
