Very sad indeed.

Forward our sympathies to the family from Y if she comes back into the hub.

He'll be 'retired' with honour which is the tradition on Y in these circumstances.

Great Wojtek!
I often lately was wondering why after being in contact very often till last Spring, he suddenly disappeared.
He gave me a lot of material for In Rainbow Light - The Box.
Very good and gentle guy.
I'm really sorry for his family.
Honor HIM. :tear:

Oh dear!
I have at least one of his ROIO's, "Waterbury Collector's Edition," (actually RCMH, New York, but there was confusion at that time) and it is outstanding, especially the renditions of "Set the Controls" and "One of these Days."
You contributed much to the music, and you will be sorely missed, my friend.
:tear::(:worthy:

Pottel
2010-01-02, 02:22 PM
i got, like many of us, many a great roio from him.
shite, in this "cosy little world " of ours you tend to forget there is a real world out there where people live and die every day..
so after K_K, Wojtek, and some other great guys that i cannot think of this exact instance, can we not set up some sort of PF Fan Hall of Fame to honou those who left us?
may sound like a silly idea, bu it was the first thing that came up..

thanks W. and my sincerest condoleances to his family and friends

will archive his site for times to come.

I listened to some of Wojtek's work and he always put out a good package and liked the simpleness of his artwork. His site was always a good reference point too.

And a sad way to start the new year.

My regards to his family during this difficult start to 2010 for them especially Susan for taking time out in informing the PF community.

RIP Wojtek.

Peace always,
Olly.

Deepest regards and Condolences to the family of Wojtek, one of the greats of Pink Floyd ROIOs. We were always stunned by Wojteks work. His manner of producing ROIOs was a gift. Two greats from the collector community are together now..KK and Wojtek. May they rest in peace.

Shine on, both of you. :tear::(

I just got the news via a torrent at dime.

I liked to use his site as reference and it was a kind of little floydian home for me, even if I never had personal contact with Wojtek.
(So it isn't a silly idea to archive his site, Pottel, as I don't want to miss it and cyberprace would be a little more empty without it...)


My regards and condolences to Wojtek's family.

I also like Pottel's idea.

I am cranking the Atom Heart Mother from "M-502" (1971-02-25 Grosser Saal Musikhalle, Hamburg, West Germany) in his honor as it is my favorite version and very powerful, imo!

Wojtek was a good friend with whom I had made several nice trades with as well ..
I have a special section of my share for the hubs of his catalog for the sharing for years now ..he had good sources.
The Pink Floyd Community surely took a hit that will be hard to heal.
You shall truly be missed .. R.I.P. my friend.
See you on the other side ...
