Jimmy Page: “My very dear friend Pete Makowski passed away yesterday” – 2021 – Tributes
Jimmy Page: My very dear friend Pete Makowski passed away yesterday.
We have known each other for years and he helped me in the early stages of research for my first website in 2010, where some of the material we sourced became the foundation for the popular On This Day series of posts. I have gratefully received such enthusiasm from you all over the years and Pete should also be praised for his enormous, upbeat and positive contribution to musical journalism.
I will miss Pete.

I can’t believe it, another journalist and friend sadly passed away. Again, a real legend who we worked with a lot. RIP Pete Makowski, Tony pic.twitter.com/TlCKrRvLe1

Really sad to lose another old journalist mate, Pete Makowski.
He was part of a frontline of rock journalists that welcomed me to London when I first moved to the smoke. We were fast friends and loved getting fucked up together. Great times. Sucks that I’ll never see him again.
