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

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.❤

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.
