John leaves IQ
Friday, 07 January 2011.
Sadly we have to announce that John Jowitt is leaving IQ after 19 years playing with the band.
In that time John has become a great friend and a real asset to the IQ family and we’ll miss him very much.
“I'm very sad to say that although playing with IQ has been a dream come true, after 19 years with the band I love, last month's Christmas gig at the O2 was my last show with IQ, and I'm leaving the band. I've had a great time, met lots of wonderful people, travelled the world, but it's time to move on. I'd like to confirm that this is my decision, and also that it has no relationship to me playing with any other band.
I'd like to wish all the best to IQ, for what I'm sure will continue to be a great future; I'd like to thank the crew and past band members for all their help, camaraderie and hard work, and most of all, I'd like to thank everyone who's come along to the shows over the years and supported us.
So, onwards and upwards. See you January 29th at the Peel!”
