Music writer Roy Carr has died.

Through his work as a critic and tape compiler Roy Carr helped shape the debate around British music for decades, first joining the New Musical Express in the late 60s.

Later editing the NME, Melody Maker, and Vox, he wrote a number of books including early - and essential - tomes on The Beatles, Rolling Stones, and Elvis Presley.

Perhaps Roy Carr's most enduring legacy, though, is his work as a tape compiler, helping piece together covermount releases for NME, Melody Maker, and Vox.

Working with those titles for decades, Roy Carr worked on the seminal C81 and C86 tapes for NME - the latter of which became a genre tag in its own right.

Former colleagues and admirers of Carr's work mourned his passing on social media.
