The death has been announced of Chris Tetley, long serving Picadilly Radio metal dj. He was with the Manchester station between 1977 and 1993, where he shared a love of music coupled with the inside track that could only come from his time as a producer and road manager with acts including Black Sabbath and Joe Cocker.

Tetley developed a lucrative sideline as interrogator for a seemingly endless number of interview picture disc albums, notching up time with everyone from Ronnie James Dio to Roger Waters.

That's sad. I remember buying his interview picture discs with AC/DC, Iron Maiden, Magnum etc. I especially remember the disc with Brian johnson, both of them laughing like hell constantly throughout the interview. Great bloke, sad to see him go.

Chris Tetley, the British "Picture Disc" DJ. He was one great rock-n-roll artist interviewer. I didn't know until I read this post that he was at one time the road manager for Black Sabbath!
