Nic Potter R.I.P

We were saddened to heart today of the death of Nic Potter. Nic is probably best known for his work as basist with Van der Graaf Generator during two specific periods of the bands existence. Classic Rock radio's Jon Kirkman was privileged to work with Nic on his "All Contained" boxed set and filmed an exclusive interview for inclusion in the box. Jon wishes to send his condolences to Nic's family and friends at this dificult time. The interview can be seen here: Nic Potter is probably best known for his work with the British rock band Van Der Graaf Generator. Initially however Nic played in a band called The Misunderstood along with Guy Evans who would also join Van Der Graaf Generator. Nic joined Van Der Graaf Generator in 1969 and recorded the album The Least We Can Do Is Wave To Each Other and recorded part of the next album H To He, Who Am The Only One before leaving. He was however to return to the band later in the seventies and played on two more albums from the band, the studio album The Quiet Zone/The Pleasure Dome and the live album Vital before the band split. In between times and of course beyond his final stint with Van Der Graaf Generator Nic Potter has had an extensive solo career recording a number of solo albums and for a short period in the early to mid eighties was a member of Peter Hammill's band The K Group.
