Speaking from a hotel in the Republic of Ireland, Baker, 75, said: “We go back a long way, I called him Wee Jack. It’s a big loss to the world and I’m very sad.

“I found out yesterday when my daughter phoned me and my first reaction was that it was a hoax because I have been reported dead so many times myself, but then it became reality.

“It was quite a while since I last spoke to him but he was a one-off, his approach to music made him special.

“My feeling is with his wife Margrit and his kids.”
