Hampstead Claret RIP

Postby Elizabeth » Sun Oct 13, 2019 11:44 am

I heard this morning that Hampstead Claret has sadly passed away.
Hampstead was a regular contributor on this board for many years and was never shy of giving his opinions on all things political.
But he was more than this. He was a lifelong Burnley fan for 60 years since he started kicking a football around the school yard. He was also a lover of music, starting many music threads. A great sense of humour and many more qualities.
Rip Hampstead

Very sad.
He’ll be missed on the board for sure.
I remember him as a fellow Bowie fan.
RIP

His music threads were always a treat to read.

Whilst we've never met, I still feel like I've lost a friend.

Very sad and surprised to hear this. As has been said already his posts were always informative, and wide ranging, and his love and knowledge of music came through. I always felt I knew Hampstead and from references in some of his messages, probably did. RIP.

Can't believe this.....Hampstead Claret lived in St Albans and was well known to me. The Hampstead name stemmed from his working at a private school in Hampstead until he packed work in a year or two ago. I saw him only about a month ago walking with his son, who is a teenager, in the town centre and, as always, we stopped and chatted about all things Claret. Also used to regularly see him at games and have had a few beers with him in my time, often at the Garibaldi pub in St Albans which was his local of choice.
He hadn't been well over the past year but seems to be on the mend the last couple of times we'd chatted. Something else we had in common was being big Springsteen fans and I replied to his recent post on the Boss's 70th birthday (23rd Sept). I'm really stunned and upset reading this news on here.
RIP a good Claret

I wonder if you know me then Elizabeth (the OP) ? I assume you knew him personally.
