Even though I never knew you, thank you for your wonderful book,"U2 Live A Concert Documentary" that was a great source of information to many U2 fans, and was also a great testament of your love for U2.

I agree.

It is sad to hear of his passing.

How very sad I am to hear of your passing.
Thank you for your book on U2. I always reread it once in awhile, and it brings a lot of joy to me.

Wow.
That's really too bad.
I've read his book cover to cover probably 20 times and found something new each read.
Huh? Never knew the man... but somehow I did.
See you when I see you Pimm

Peace

Rest in peace

This is just terrible!!! How did Pimm die?! He was only 36 or 37 at most? His U2 Live: A Concert Documentary is the BEST Book there is on U2 and I was looking forward to a new addition of the book. Pimm is a great U2 fan and person and this is very sad and difficult to believe.

This is indeed sad news. the U2 Doc books were a wonderful read and my thoughts go out to him, his family and his friends.

that's very unfortunate. His book has been bedside reading for the past year and a half....Pimm Jal de la Parra, you will be missed by a lot of people, a community of fans actually....I hope in heaven you get to pick all the music you want to listen to...I'm sure you'll be able to name certain songs from specific concerts....Cheers to you and your contributions...Take care
