A legend of the Canterbury scene has left us. Cry

Starting with Matching Mole and moving through everything I have, loved his tone.

Oy! This is some depressing news. Great player, wonderful tones, essential Canterburian. 

RIP

Same! His playing is at least partly what makes my favorite Matching Mole track my favorite. I think it's one of the great cuts to remember the one-of-a-kind musician that he was.

So sad. One of the lynch pins of the Canterbury Scene.

Very sad news indeed.. Hatfield and the North and National health lps are just superb and his interplay with Dave Stewart is just the best ever!

Rip Phil, thank you, your work has always made me very very happy.

Oh.........Oh....... This one hits hard. I’m speechless. R.I.P. to one helluva legend.
Your playing is my comfort zone, whenever life gets tough, anything from Delivery through In Cahoots tells me everything will work out fine.
Goodbye, dear musical friend

Sad news indeed. He was a true original. His playing with National Health and the Hatfields will always remain a source of wonder.

Big loss, especially to British jazz.  My condolences to his friends and family.

Hi,
 
Sadly or not, we all go sometime ... in the future, and I have come to grips with a few folks that I miss terribly, like Daevid A., or Rich W., or Edgar F., but the whole Canterbury scene, for me, was too special and neat, and it is difficult to see "all your friends" go out, one at a time, before you and I do. Sometimes, I simply tell myself, I just do not want to see/hear of any more of my "friends" leave us behind ... but the truth is ... that the universe continues, and we're just a part of it, and this is one of the little parts ... that are always hard for us to accept, when given our tendency to be so sentimental, or so much in love, that we do not see the larger picture.
 
But yes, it is hard, in between ... to see our "friends" leave us. We will miss them and their contribution to our lives ...
 
RIP Phil. The best for the family and Canterbury ... do we have to raise a glass or pint? Just say it!
... none of the hits, none of the time ... now try finding your own mirror/art! www.pedrosena.com

This is just another kick in my music appreciation head.  I love canterbury music.  I'll be listening to hatfield and national health all day.

I always loved his tasty tone. he was proof that you don't have to solo at ultra-high speed (he never was fastest hand in the West) to be highly effective. R.I.P.

Yeah, this is indeed sad news. Miller held his own among the other fine Hatfields which added to their brilliance. His was a very special sound.
