"Alan was my friend and so this is hard to write because I have just kissed him goodbye," Thompson, 56, wrote. "What I remember most in this moment of painful leave-taking is his humour, intelligence, wisdom and kindness. The intransigence which made him the great artist he was – his ineffable and cynical wit, the clarity with which he saw most things, including me, and the fact that he never spared me the view."
