RIP The Godfather of House
RIP The Godfather of House
Very sad news. A true legend of house.
Didn't appreciate his talent at the time I could have seen him play more...
Really sad. Awesome dj and lovely guy when i met him.
total legend - many a happy night i've spent thanks to Frankie. RIP
RIP Frankie. Another one passed away before their time
Dawhhhhh, thats sad
Provided the soundtrack to many a bonkers weekend
Gutted. One of my fave DJ/producer...
That 'Your Love' track with Jamie Principle is incredible, if you wanted to play one track to somebody who'd never heard dance music then that's the one you'd play for them, still my favourite after all this time.
A true legend, very sad. Thanks for the music Frankie, I'm so glad I grew up listening to you and not Dubstep.
Sad loss. He'd been struggling with health problems for years. The last I heard he'd had both feet amputated so I suspect diabetes. Think I'll do a little Frankie tribute mix tonight.
Can't put too finer point on the fact that this man changed my life completely. What he & Ron Hardy Larry Levan etc created & then Mike Pickering and countless others brought to a wider audience was probably the last underground cultural shift we will see.
I met my wife in the Hacienda on a Wednesday night in 1989 & we have been together ever since & now have four kids & that movement that happened in those clubs & fields in those years broke down so many walls including a closed shop that was the music industry. It gave me the chance & from there I went in to work in LDN set up with my own PR company for nearly 20yrs specialising in electronic dance based music I travelled & met so many heroes & legends.
I will never forget the sweat smiles whistles & gurning
Frankie Knuckles - House Music All Night Long
very sad, and another shock.
Frankie Knuckles on for the ride home tonight.
Very sad to hear this , this morning . I'd imagine god has put on some new Stantons on Heavens sl1200's and the Big Man will be cooking up a storm.
What a legend and way ahead of the game .
I've just scuttled off to iTunes...
The. Greatest house record ever made - not word of exaggeration it can bring me to tears maybe u had to be there
Dum, duff duff duff, dum, dufff duff duff...
Ahh back to the old days...
Best way to remember him I say..
Legend - RIP
Legendary. Some of my best memories are down to him. + 1 carbonfiend and I was there.
True legend of the house music scene plus its scary to think that i only saw him play at Ministry of sound on Saturday to celebrate 20 years of Rulin...
Never heard of him until yesterday ,then again I was a greasy haired hedbanger at school and im 50 so all this house stuff happened after I was a kid
An inspiration to so many. His music and mixes will live on forever.
Memories of big nights at the Eclipse in cov.
I have 2 loves in my life... Mountain Biking and House Music.
Inside 3 days we've lost one of the most influential men in Cycling in Britain, and the Godfather of House music!
RIP Frankie. Never got to see him live sadly, the irony is that next Saturday he was supposed to be playing in Brum and I was very tempted to go!
