Progobit: Nic Potter

Nic Potter, who had two spells in Van Der Graaf Generator, has died.

Potter joined VDGG when the band reformed for the first time at the end of the 1960s, as original bassist Keith Ellis had decided to stick with Juicy Lucy. He didn't hang around for long, as he found Peter Hammill's interest in the occult unsettling; indeed, he only made it through three tracks' worth of recordings for the album H To He, Who Am The Only One. Including this one:

However, he came to terms with Hammill, touring extensively as part of Hammill's solo backing band and appearing on records. Potter also came back to Van Der Graaf Generator, rejoining in the late 70s - although he still found the dark side of the band's following disturbing.

Nic Potter had been admitted to hospital with pneumonia. He died Wednesday, at the age of 61.
